Exploris aquarium closure 'madness' says McGlone

The closure of the Exploris aquarium in Portaferry would be "madness", the chairman of Stormont's enterprise committee has said.

Patsy McGlone was speaking after a fact-finding visit to the aquarium with his committee colleagues.

Ards Borough Council told them it would close to the public by March unless a department agreed to help fund the financially-troubled facility.
