Northern Ireland politicians slam P&O and call for urgent government action

Politicians in Northern Ireland have reacted with shock after ferry giant PO sacked 800 seafarers and replaced them with cheaper agency workers. There were calls for the British government to intervene to ensure the “vital” Larne to Cairnryan service continued.

Peaky Blinders superfan spends £6000 getting cast tattooed on body

A Peaky Blinders superfan has spent £6,000 covering his back and arms in tattoos dedicated to the hit BBC gangster series. David Hatfield, 58, has spent 125 hours under the needle getting most of the main characters from the gritty crime drama inked onto his body. The council worker from Halesowen, West Midlands, had his first Peaky Blinders tattoo in July 2016 after wanting to cover up an old inking from his youth. He started with a portrait of protagonist Thomas Shelby, played by Cillian Murphy, before adding more characters across his entire back. Mr Hatfield has since forked out several thousand pounds more covering both of his arms in images of mafia man Luca Changretta and Tommy’s brother Arthur Shelby.
