Alex Easton MLA has today blasted DRD & DCAL for empting Portavoe Reservoir killing hundreds of fish and without letting anglers know Portavoe was to be emtied.

Speaking today Alex Easton MLA said:

“This is totally irresponsible that government Department have allowed this to happen without taking measures to firstly inform the local anglers but more importantly to empty a reservoir that has devastated the fish population and affected the local wildlife in this way is both criminal and negligence. There is No reason why the fish could not have been taken out and there is no reason why anglers could not have been informed that Portavoe was to be emptied. I will be asking questions and demanding answers at the NI Assembly as to why this serious incident has been allowed to occur!”
