Armagh District Journalist - Gordon Adair

A native of Armagh, Gordon began his journalism career with the Portadown Times before moving on to the News Letter and Daily Mirror. He began his 'love affair' with the BBC on Valentine's Day 2000.

Working as a broadcast journalist for both radio and TV in the Belfast newsroom, he returned 'home' in 2004 when he became BBC Newsline's reporter in the southern part of Northern Ireland.

Based in the BBC's studio at the Planetarium in Armagh, he keeps an eye on what's happening in Armagh, South Tyrone and, occasionally, Monaghan and Cavan.

The USPCA says the new Animal Welfare Bill must help them move more quickly and decisively against cruelty and neglect.

It follows the biggest horse-rescue in the charity's 100-year history, when more than 70 animals were saved from shocking conditions on a farm near Mallusk.
