MASSIVE BONFIRES HAVE been built across parts of Northern Ireland ahead of celebrations to commemorate the Battle of the Boyne on 12 July.

The bonfires, which have been built in areas with majority Protestant populations, are to commemorate the 1690 battle in which King William of Orange defeated the Catholic King James.

The bonfires will be lit tomorrow night ahead of a major Orange parade to be held on 12 July.

Here’s how some of the biggest bonfires look:
