Invasive bracken removed to protect Murlough habitat

Invasive bracken has been removed from one of Northern Ireland's most important nature reserves.

The bracken at Murlough, County Down, is being tackled to protect the different species of moth, butterfly and ground-nesting birds and their habitats.

Patrick Lynch, a conservation ranger at the site, said they were trying to create a "mosaic" which would house the animals and protect flora.
