Around 300 people turned out to help a Holloway Cafe celebrate the most famous maritime disaster on Sunday.

The Titanic cafe, in Holloway Road, marked 100 years since it namesake sank with half-price food for everyone all day.

They also had outdoor seating, balloons, pictures of the ship and old newspapers and news footage around the cafe.

Aligul Karagoz, owner of the cafe, said: “It was a very nice day. Lots of people came to help celebrate which was great.

“Some of the customers even brought a cake for me and the staff too, which was lovely.”
