Mackerel spilled across a field in County Down

Many people may think they’ve been given a fishy story when a lorryload of mackerel had overturned in a field.

The scores of mackerel overturned into a field at Derryboy Road near Crossgar earlier on Wednesday.

The result is a lot of upset fish sellers and even more content farm cats.
