Saving horse mussels

Saving the horse mussels in Strangford Lough has taken on new importance for the Executive.

Large reefs were damaged by fishing boats but now a project has been launched to try and help them recover - and to stop us ending up in the European courts.

Our environment correspondent Mike McKimm has been covering the plight of these creatures for several years.

You can see an extended version of Mike's interview with Ministers Michelle Gildernew and Sammy Wilson by clicking the link below.

You can remind yourself of the backstory to today's developments by clicking the links to two of his old stories on this subject.
