Exploris aquarium reopens: Nile crocodile is new star

A two-year-old Nile crocodile is among the new attractions as Northern Ireland's only aquarium reopened to the public after a £2m refurbishment.

Exploris in the County Down town of Portaferry was threatened with permanent closure in 2013.

But a rescue package backed by the Northern Ireland Executive and Ards and North Down Borough Council, which owns Exploris, secured its future.
