A man in his 30s has received a Community Resolution Notice for disorderly behaviour while on a boat on Lough Erne.

Police say that the boat was being operated in a way that was "inconsiderate to others". They say he was creating large wakes which "caused a nearby boat with two people on board to rock excessively".

In a statement issued by PSNI in Fermanagh, a spokesperson said "The boat operator was spoken to by the warden and police shouted warnings from the police jetty to the boat owner to desist this behaviour but it continued with some fishermen on the shore being swamped by the wake water.

"This notice was later issued to the man who also apologised to the boat user.

"This incident shows the need to show due respect to others when enjoying our beautiful lakelands."
