Peel dredging in 2018 a must

Dredging contaminated silt from the bottom of Peel inner harbour in the early part of 2018 is 'a priority', according ot a northern MHK.

Tim Baker is chairing a cross-departmental group tasked with finding a solution for safe disposal of the polluted material.

The Department of Infrastructure chose not to remove the silt and dump it into the sea, because it contained unsafe amounts of heavy metals.

The base of the inner harbour hasn't been dredged since 2015.

Mr Baker says it's clear a sustainable and safe answer needs to be found.
