THE massive Blackford Dolphin oil rig has left the Harland and Wolff shipyard in east Belfast.

The rig initially came in for a 60-day refit last November, but was found to need much more extensive repair work.

About 600 workers have been employed on the project – about 400 of them brought in from outside Northern Ireland.

On Tuesday, it began its journey to the North Sea where owners Dolphin Drilling will put it back into service.
