The judges of Miss Northern Ireland are going to have a tough job on their hands this year.

It would appear that the girls in this years competition have looks that can stop traffic - literally.

Great Victoria Street in Belfast was brought to a stand still after a double-decker bus and taxi collided.

There are no reports of any injuries as a result of the crash which happened beside a photoshoot for Miss Northern Ireland 2012.

The winner will be crowned at an event in the Europa Hotel in Belfast city centre on Monday night.
