  • Peru Two drug mule Michaella McCollum on being 'top dog' and earning £200 per week from inside South American jail

    One of the drug smugglers dubbed the Peru Two has told how she became "top dog" in her block and earned £200 per week while inside a South American prison. In an interview with the Daily Record following her return to Northern Ireland last week, Michaella McCollum told how she believes a blazing argument over drugs on a tourist bus led to her arrest, and how her jail stint has led to a string of admirers. Along with Melissa Reid, the 23-year-old was arrested at Lima's international airport in 2013, trying to board a flight to Spain with 24lb of cocaine hidden inside porridge wrappers. The pair were both jailed for six years and eight months, but freed early under new legislation on early prison

  • Lewis Hamilton handed 30-place grid penalty at Belgian Grand Prix

    A difficult test lies in store for Lewis Hamilton at the 2016 Belgian Grand Prix after confirmation that he will face a daunting 30-place grid penalty. The three-time world champion currently leads Nico Rosberg by 19 points atop of the Formula One Driver Standings after reeling in and then impressively overhauling his Mercedes teammate's substantial early advantage by winning six of the last seven races. The latest F1 campaign returns this weekend after its customary one-month break, but Hamilton's chances of recording a second successive victory at the famous Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps had already been dealt a blow by a 15-place demotion handed down after the introduction of a sixth MGU-H energy recovery system and turbocharger before Friday's (26 August) first practice session.

    A legendary 10-foot sturgeon dubbed ‘Pig Nose’ has finally been caught by a fishing fanatic who has been nicknamed the ‘Sturgeon Whisperer’.

  • Why I quit social work…after four months

    by Andy Faulkner As someone who is over half a century old, I did not go into social work expecting it to be all sweetness and light, nor did I ever think I’d save the world (or even a fraction of it). However, my experiences within the profession have left me wondering why I even bothered in the first place. In 2012 I was one of the very lucky ones, one of the “high flyers”, that managed to get a place on the government’s prestigious ‘Step Up To Social Work’ scheme. Reserved for those that already had a 2:1 degree or above, I went through one of the most arduous interview processes I’ve ever been through, and my reward was a place with my local consortium. Prior to this I’d had a (fairly) successful

    GLEN MINIKIN David Render, 54, led a remarkable transformation of once dilapidated areas near his home only to receive an email from a council official accusing him of “trespass, criminal damage and removal of property”. The email went on to warn him that if he carried on cutting down branches that overhang roads - as he had to do whilst restoring the sculpture - he would be put under investigation and “appropriate action” would be taken.  Mr Render rounded up a team of volunteers and spent £289 of his own money to restore a sculpture to its former glory after 28 years of neglect saw it become a rusting hulk obscured by overgrown bushes on a slip-road.
