Two schools are celebrating after they hit the right note with the judges and were named the top choirs in Northern Ireland.

Grosvenor Grammar School, Belfast, won the prize for the best senior choir and Pond Park Primary School, Lisburn, won the junior award.

The BBC Radio Ulster School Choir Of The Year was broadcast live from Belfast's Ulster Hall on Sunday.

It was presented by John Toal and Kerry McLean.

A total of 64 choirs battled it out to win a place in the final.
