Poet has Villiers waxing lyrical

Seamus Heaney's passing has brought out a poetic streak in Theresa Villiers.

At an Irish embassy reception this week, the secretary of state said: "Our strong ties of history, of culture, of language and literature and economy and friendship and family, bind us closer together as nations.

"An illustration of that was the sadness across both our two countries that followed the death of Seamus Heaney, one of the greatest poets of the past 100 years."
