The scale of the flooding around the shores of Lough Neagh has been captured by a drone video.

Last week, it was claimed the lough had reached a 30-year high, with hundreds of people flocking to see the effects.

The video which was filmed by Big Country Production has been viewed over 3,500 times on Youtube.

The Secretary of State Theresa Villiers spent part of Monday seeing the effects of the heavy rainfall first-hand.

“I think the response has been very effective, I know all the ministers within the Executive with responsibility have been working hard and working closely together to try and minimise the problems people have experienced,” she told UTV.

“I hope the £1.3m is going to be helpful in relieving flooding and it’s for the Executive to decide how that’s spent.”
