Bateman scoops book prize.

THE BBC may have blasted one of his children's books for being politically incorrect, but that didn't stop kids from voting for Ulster author Colin Bateman at a top awards ceremony.

Bangor-born Bateman - the creator of Belfast detective show Murphy's Law - has just won the Book of the Year prize in the children's writing awards held in Rotherham.

The organisers explained: "The overwhelming favourite was Titanic 2020 by Colin Bateman. Authors recognise the importance of the award because it is chosen by children."
