A PLAGUE of rats is making life a misery for locals in the Lower Ormeau area, with rodents breeding on the banks of the River Lagan.
A PSNI officer who risked his own life to save a woman from drowning in the River Lagan is to be recommended for official recognition by South Belfast DPP members.
CONCERNS HAVE again been raised over safety around the River Lagan after another frightening incident followed the death of young Joby Murphy. Although details of the incident – which were reported to the South Belfast News by a passing eyewitness who did not wish to be identified – are limited a PSNI officer was labelled a hero after jumping in to save a young woman who entered the water
The family of Joby Murphy has appealed to the people of West Belfast for help in their bid to find their son’s body. Four weeks have passed since the 20-year-old fell from a footbridge into the River Lagan after a night out. Every day since the tragedy, Joby’s father has been at the harbour doing all he can to recover his son’s body.
The body of a South Belfast man, which was recovered from the River Lagan last week, was the second death along the same stretch of river in as many days.
