Editor's Viewpoint: We're all at sea over plans for bridge link to Scotland
There is clearly an urgent need for a bridge over troubled waters, as people make claims and counter-claims for the most suitable link between Northern Ireland and Scotland.
Some people want a bridge between the Mull of Kintyre and Co Antrim, while others suggest linking Portpatrick to Bangor or even Larne.
