#H&Wprofits – Returning to the black as Harland & Wolff have posted pre-tax profits of £8.7m following huge losses just a year earlier.

The Belfast shipyard clawed back its profits by opening up business across a range of areas after its more than £4m losses in 2013, Harland & Wolff has said.

Turnover for the year ending December 2014 shot up to £55m - a 70% rise on the same period in 2013, when it stood at £32m.

Harland & Wolff's sales and marketing manager David McVeighsaid the increase was down to "continual investment" in the firm, and moving on from the huge loss it suffered in 2013.
