GERRY Adams smuggled memoirs out of the Maze Prison up his bum, it has been claimed.

Punk poet John Cooper Clarke said the former Sinn Fein leader asked him on a Belfast to Dublin train for help to get them published in the Republic.

He said: "As I was sitting reading my paper I was approached by two unlikely looking companions: one looked like a chief librarian, the other had the fugitive look of a recently released H-Block resident."
