Wayne, Thom VII will never think to look here ... :)

Your big local story of the week could be that anyone visiting Belfast (gain a point for meeting LTA's remit) and having one too many in the welcoming city centre hostelries on a Friday or Saturday evening, will now be able to get a late night bus home from Shaftesbury Square.

Just need to keep £3 in your pocket, and you'll be able to catch a buses operating on four routes through east, west and south Belfast. Last bus leaves at 02:45.

Details should be updated shortly at http://www.translink.co.uk/MetroNightlink.asp, and the original story is from the BBC at http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/northern_ireland/4824918.stm

In fact, it's just been bettered by the daft decision to rename Belfast City Airport in honour of George Best - "a permanent memorial to a son of East Belfast" - though they won't reveal the exact new name of the airport until the rename event in May.

If Liverpool could rename to John Lennon, then Belfast follows suit ...
