Singer Rihanna was mobbed by enthusiastic fans yesterday in Belfast as she continued shooting her new video in Northern Ireland.

As TNT reported yesterday, the singer ran into trouble out in the Irish countryside for stripping off in a field, causing a local farmer to intervene and put a stop to the video shoot.

Crowds of fans in the New Lodge area of the city were able to catch a glimpse of the singer and her huge security entourage as she arrived around midday.

She spoke to the excited fans through a megaphone during the shoot in the afternoon.

The Belfast Telegraph reported that producers asked if they could use a local man's house for the duration of the shoot. Patrick McCloskey's house was taken over by the crew, whilst Rhianna used his bedroom for hair and makeup. She was also said to have visited a fish and chip shop in the city for her dinner the previous night.

UK dance music producer Calvin Harris has been working with the Barbados-born pop star on her new single 'We Found Love'.

Rihanna is likely to return to Belfast in November for the MTV EMAs in November which take place at the city's Odyssey Arena.
