We knew a Facebook Live of us getting a first glimpse of the infamous NDR would drum up a bit of a reaction. What we didn't anticipate was just how hilarious your comments would be.

You might think a new road opeing is hardly the most exciting of events.

But when it's something as big as the Northern Distributor Road opening it's first section, it can't be missed.

So we sent out one of our reporters (thanks Lauren) and decided to document the experience through video.

All whilst broadcasting it all to our thousands of supportive followers live on Facebook.

We knew we'd get some comments, plenty of views, perhaps even a funny jibe or two.

But we didn't anticipate your reactions making us laugh as much they did.

So we hope you enjoy reading back through these comments, and do remember to take a look at the Facebook video which got everyone talking.

And for all those who commented, thank you for making us chuckle over here in the news-room on a Friday afternoon.

The road opens to all on Saturday November 11.
