Five farmers who claimed their land was severely flooded when a runway at City of Derry Airport was extended, have received out-of-court compensation.

The five landowners took action against Derry City Council, Civilair and FP McCann Ltd to Belfast High Court.
On Tuesday it was announced that the case, taken due to the damage caused to their livelihood by the waterlogged land, had been settled out-of-court.
It is understood the total amount awarded to the five was £195,500.
The damage to grassland and crops occurred between December 1998 and January 1999 when a draining system which worked by means of valves became blocked and flooded land close to the airport.
The landowners - John Jameson, William Gillespie, Alan Hunter, Sean O'Hara and John Bradley - are all from the Campsie area.
