Concerns about a drop in water levels at Killea reservoir, in the west of Co Londonderry, have been allayed.

SDLP Foyle MP Mark Durkan raised the issue with NI Water after being contacted by a concerned resident.

NI Water told him it had to be drained for maintenance, that the operation should not affect wildlife, and that water levels would return to normal by April.
