A teenager thought to have been the first victim of the Titanic has finally been given a headstone on his grave.

Samuel Scott, 15, fractured his skull whilst working on the ship in 1910. His body has since lain in an unmarked grave in Belfast City Cemetery.

However, a new headstone was unveiled there on Saturday as part of the Feile an Phobail festival.

A new children's book, Spirit Of The Titanic, used the teenager as its main character.

The book, published earlier this year, follows the boy's ghost as it haunts the decks of the ship during its voyage.
