Five Lough Neagh Rescue crew members expelled in row

Five crew members have been expelled from the Lough Neagh Rescue charity by the Charity Commission amid a dispute which has split the organisation.

This is the first case of its kind in Northern Ireland in which members of a charity have been removed by the commission.

It follows what has been described as a "protracted and emotive" dispute between members of the lifeboat charity.

Kevin Magee reports.
