Alex Easton MLA has today called for all slipways under the control of Ards and North Down Council to be cleaned.

Speaking today Alex Easton MLA said:

“I have received a complaint about a slipway in Millisle that is very much covered in green algae and is actually dangerous to walk on, it is also a hazard for anyone wanting to use it to launch a boat down the slipway as a car can slide down the ramp because of the green algae and quickly go under. I am urging the Council, to take action to clean the slipways around North down as they are starting to be used on a more regular basis, safety first must be our priority.”
