Lough Neagh eel fishermen will have to find new markets

Lough Neagh eel fishermen will have to find new markets for a fifth of their catch due to Brexit and the operation of the Northern Ireland Protocol.
It means finding new buyers for 50 tonnes of eels, worth £500,000, just months before the start of this year's season.
The fish would traditionally have gone to Billingsgate Market in London and been sold as jellied eels.
But the complexities of Brexit mean that trade is no longer possible.
