Saturday events & things

It is one hell of a busy night tonight with live music happening all over the place!

A rum do
A team of builders who found a barrel of rum in a house they were renovating got a nasty surprise when they drank the contents - there was a corpse in the barrel.

The workers in Szeged, Hungary, made the grim discovery as they tried to move the barrel after drinking the contents!

Police think the body of the man had been shipped back from Jamaica 20 years ago by his wife in the barrel of rum in order to avoid the cost and paperwork of an official return. The wife has since died and the man has now had a proper funeral.
