Up Close: What Lies Beneath
A pollution catastrophe faces Lough Neagh, arguably Northern Ireland’s greatest asset. Who will save it? UTV’s award-winning ‘Up Close’ team dives deep to find answers.
Sarah Clarke seeks to find answers as to why Lough Neagh, which is meant to be protected by a number of environmental organisations, was allowed to get into such a dire state; who was meant to be regulating; and who was raising the alarm. Sarah challenges NI Water, The Ulster Farmers’ Union, and stakeholder groups, and speaks to scientists, environmentalists and locals about solutions.
