The Charity Commission for Northern Ireland has removed five crew members from the charity Lough Neagh Rescue.

The removals were made following a statutory investigation by the regulator in May of last year. The five crew members were removed from their posts in October.

It is not the first time the charity has come under scrutiny from the NI Charity Commission. In August of last year the regulator removed a trustee from the Board because of concerns over the charity’s ‘historic administration and governance.’

The five crew members who are volunteers, have lodged an appeal with the charity tribunal in Northern Ireland.
