Higgins family at war

Even in death Alex Higgins is at the centre of a storm.

The ‘Hurricane’ blazed through a booze-soaked life of violence, drug abuse, family feuds and shattered relationships.

And today, Sunday Life reveals how the tragic hellraiser still can’t rest in peace. His relatives are caught up in a bitter family break-up — that will have him spinning in his freshly-dug grave.

In an astonishing outburst last week, Higgy’s closest Ulster relatives declared war on his English ex-wife Lynn and pretty daughter Lauren. Higgins’ sisters Jean Simpson and Isobel McCann — along with his niece Shelley Simpson — vented their fury during an extraordinary exclusive interview with us.

For the full story, see this week's Sunday Life.
