And finally… UK and Ireland’s Monopoly champion crowned


A Northern Ireland woman who defeated her husband in the early stages of the championship has been acclaimed the best Monopoly player in the UK and Ireland.

Natalie Fitzsimons, 24 from Saintfield, won the tense Monopoly Championships hour-and-a-half final in The Shard, London last week.

Mrs Fitzsimons beat her husband at the regional heats and went on to claim the champion title in the British capital, fending off challengers from the rest of the country.

The cunning capitalist will now be invited to communist-ruled China to represent the UK and Ireland at the world championships in Macau.
