George Best Belfast childhood home to be holiday flats


The childhood home of George Best in east Belfast is being turned into self-catering holiday flats.

The house, 16 Burren Way, off the Cregagh Road, was bought for £100,000 by a community regeneration group.

The footballer lived there until he was 15, when he was taken to Manchester by manager Matt Busby to take a job as an office boy near United's ground. Dan Stanton reports.
