Lost sheep 'survive 23 days trapped in heavy snow' in NI

Two sheep trapped in snow in Northern Ireland since the spring blizzard over three weeks ago have been found alive.

They survived in an air pocket in a ditch covered in 6ft (1.8m) of snow. They spent 23 days without food in freezing conditions in the north Antrim hills.

Farmer Sam Wallace said it was a "miracle" they were still alive.

BBC Ireland Correspondent Mark Simpson reports.
