The first trailer promoting a film about how republican prisoners escaped from Long Kesh in 1983 has been released.

The escape, which took place on September 25, became the biggest in UK history when 38 IRA volunteers successfully exited H-Block Seven.

'Maze' is directed by Stephen Burke and it features 'Love Hate' star, Tom Vaughan-Lawlor, as its protagonist.

'Maze' will be released on September 22, 2017.
