£4m needed to clean up Maze site

Almost £4 million is needed to complete clean-up work at the Maze/Long Kesh site, officials say.

Around £8m has already been spent decontaminating the former high-security prison and security base to prepare it for sale, the Office of the First Minister and Deputy First Minister added.

But civil servants behind the project defended the work and said any deal without asbestos and oil being removed would be worth less to the public purse.
