Mid and East Antrim Council along with volunteers from Portglenone Paddlers have collected rubbish, plastic and debris from the River Bann on Thursday evening.

The Portglenone Marina clean-up was supported by NI Water as part of their Refillution campaign.

Northern Ireland currently uses 145 million single use plastic bottles a year.

This campaign is aimed at encouraging everyone to commit to refilling a reusable water bottle with tap water in an attempt to reduce plastic waste.
