John Bell: Belfast street named after physicist who proved Einstein wrong

Belfast City Council has named a street after John Stewart Bell, one of Northern Ireland's most eminent scientists.

The street in Belfast's Titanic Quarter has been named Bell's Theorem Crescent.

He is regarded as one of the 20th Century's greatest physicists, and was believed to have been in line for a Nobel Prize in Physics when he died in 1990 from a stroke.

BBC News NI's Louise Cullen reports.
