Wicklow Among Black Spots Where Rivers And Lakes Are Littered

Over a third of Ireland's rivers and lakes are now littered.

A new survey has raised concerns about the level of plastic litter in rivers and lakes across the country.

A team from DCU inspected almost 400 waterways, and found more than a third of them were littered.

Even beauty spots like Glendalough's Upper Lake in Wicklow failed to be classed as clean.
