Strangford Lough - The beasts down below


An invasive alien marine creature that can smother native species has been found in Strangford Lough.

The carpet sea squirt was found about three weeks ago on a routine check by environmental officials of the lough.

They are now trying to find out how far it has spread.

Claire Savage reports for BBC Newsline.
