Martin McGuinness and Arlene Foster will be responsible for cleaning and maintaining the Peace Bridge from now on.

A spokesperson for the Office of First Minister and Deputy First Minister confirmed: “OFMDFM will be responsible for the cleansing and maintenance of the Peace Bridge from April 1, 2016.”

Ilex has been responsible for maintaining and cleaning the Peace Bridge since it opened in the summer of 2011.

But the Londonderry regeneration company is no more after OFMDFM took the decision to close it down a year earlier than recommended by an independent review of Ilex Urban Regeneration Company, which was commissioned by OFMDFM in January 2015.
