Plans are in motion for a memorial statue in honour of Northern Ireland motorcycling star William Dunlop in his hometown of Ballymoney.
The tribute would be situated beside his father Robert’s statue in the Joey and Robert Dunlop memorial gardens in Castle Street in the Co Antrim town.
A proposal has been submitted to Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council.
One of the most popular riders in the sport, 32-year-old William was tragically killed following a crash in qualifying at the Skerries 100 road races in north Co Dublin in July 2018.
