Portrush Airshow will not take place this summer

The Portrush Airshow will not take place this summer, as part of plans by the local council to save money.

Causeway Coast and Glens Council is £70m in debt - and it agreed to cut funding for the airshow at a meeting on Wednesday night.

The show has been a major summer attraction for the seaside town every August

News of its cancellation has been seen as a blow, however it is expected that the move will save the council over a quarter of a million pounds every year.

The council has also agreed to completely close the Waterworld swimming pool, saying £80,000 per year.

Meanwhile there will be increases to car parking charges, and wifi will be turned off in several towns.

The decisions are expected to save a yearly total of more than £2m.
