Sinn Féin MLA Ian Milne has praised the emergency services in their quick response in rescuing five men from Lough Neagh last night.
Mr Milne said,
“The Coastguard and other emergency services deserve praise for their quick response to an emergency on Lough Neagh when five men got into difficulties.
“The men had got disorientated due to the darkness but thankfully they were brought ashore safe and sound.
“The lough can be a very dangerous place especially at night and I would appeal to anyone taking to the water to ensure that they are properly prepared with the correct equipment and having taken professional advice.”
