Inside Line Of Duty star Martin Compston’s Las Vegas home with wife Tianna Flynn

Published

on

The nation is eagerly awaiting the hotly-anticipated finale of Line Of Duty on Sunday, in which fans are hoping the identity of the elusive ‘H’ will finally be unveiled.

Yet away from the show, Martin Compston’s real life in Las Vegas is a million miles away from the gritty world of AC-12 as he swaps nicking bent coppers for a relaxing life in the sunshine – because, as he puts it, you get more for your money in America.

The actor, 36, – who plays Steve Arnott in the hit BBC drama – relocated Stateside in 2019 with his American wife Tianna Flynn, their baby boy, and their pet pitbull King, where they snapped up a sprawling four-bed mansion in Nevada – which boasts a spa, and even a solar-heated swimming pool – for $420,000.

Martin and Tianna, who married in 2016 at Mar Hall, Renfrewshire, live two streets away from Tianna’s mother, and they set up in Vegas to put down roots after previously living in Los Angeles and London.

Martin and Tianna met in 2013 following the demise of his relationship with girlfriend of five years, Stacey McKelvie. 

Actress Tianna hails from the US – and she and Martin met at the Hudson Hotel in LA, where she was working as a nightclub manager. She prefers to remain Stateside when Martin films in the UK.

The star recently said it makes sense when he travels for work for Tianna to be near her family, especially after welcoming their first child last year, whose name has not been revealed. 

As well as his sunny Vegas home, Martin also has a place in Greenock in Scotland – his hometown, and he flits between the two – but says Greenock feels more like home to him.  

He told Weekend Magazine: ‘We have a place in Greenock and a place in Vegas and, I’m going to sound like a p***k saying this, but I kind of see Greenock as home, and Vegas as a holiday home.’

The star splits his time between the two countries but has previously spoken about how much he loves their swimming pool in Vegas, telling The Sunday Post: ‘I love it. The weather is great, obviously, and compared to Los Angeles and London you get so much more for your money.

‘I’ve never been flash with anything. I’ve never really spent my money or liked fancy cars, so we saved to hopefully get a bit of a dream home.

‘I wanted to get a place with a pool. It’s an incredible feeling when you’re from Greenock and you can get your family over to stay and you’ve got a swimming pool out your back.’ 

The couple were keen to buy a house with a pool, and they lucked out with their mansion as it is not only heated it has a built-in Jacuzzi as well as the main swimming area.

The couple have often shared pictures while luxuriating in the pool, with their pooch King often joining them so that he can cool off in the water.

One such selfie shows that the pool has plenty of space around it for them to put sun loungers and have tables for guests if they are keen to enjoy an al-fresco dinner with their loved ones. 

That’s not all they can enjoy outdoors as they also have a chic garden area, that has been well maintained and features a number of flora and a stone pathway.   

While Martin has been quiet on social media about fatherhood, he told Weekend Magazine this month: ‘Being a new parent is exhilarating but tough, and it’s harder if you’re living it in the public eye. 

‘I don’t think I’m being overly private – everyone who needs to know my kid, knows him.’

Earlier this week, a new trailer for Line Of Duty’s finale was released, only serving to heighten speculation around the identity of ‘H’. 

Viewers can be certain of an action-packed finale episode complete with a police standoff, the return of balaclava men and the discovery of a written note with THAT ‘definately’ misspelling. 

The trailer starts off with Superintendent Ted Hastings (Adrian Dunbar), who is facing imminent retirement, state: ‘All of these suspicious deaths were orchestrated by one officer in particular, H. The fourth man.’

Coming back: Line Of Duty will be back on Sunday night and fans are eager to find out whether AC-12 will finally crack the case on the elusive H

Hastings’ powerful words went alongside flashbacks of the deaths of solicitor Jimmy Lakewell, police officer Lisa Patel, journalist Gail Vella and former Detective Inspector Marcus Thurwell- whom fans believe is still alive.  

The trailer then shows acting Superintendent Jo Davidson (Kelly MacDonald) leaving the high-security prison in handcuffs, only to end up alone in a van with a corrupt prison officer who previously injured Lindsay Denton in series three. 

Jo says: ‘What’s going on?’, before the camera flashes a sinister look from the prison officer.  

A handwritten note is also teased in the trailer, with the word definite misspelt to mirror what viewers have seen previously.

A huge clue of the identity of H began to emerge in series five, when the OCG communicated with ‘H’ through a computer.  

Eagle-eyed fans were quick to notice H spelling definitely as ‘definately’, and this misspelling has been repeated in subsequent episodes. 

Will this handwritten report be the breakthrough AC-12 need to close in on ‘the fourth man’? 

Shootout: And it only gets more dramatic as balaclava men jump out of vehicles armed with guns themselves

It certainly seems Hastings and his team are on to something as police cars sped down the road, with armed officers closing in on a residential area during the trailer. 

The Superintendent briefs DI Kate Fleming, DI Steve Arnott and DC Chloe Bishop as they arrive at the scene.

Hastings says: ‘AFO’s will secure the suspect down’, while the words ‘Every investigation has led to this… H’.

And it only gets more dramatic as balaclava men jump out of vehicles armed with guns themselves. 

Kate opens the police van, brandishes her gun and shouts: ‘armed police’ before the screen fades to black. 

Clue: A handwritten note is also teased in the trailer, with the word definite misspelt to mirror what viewers have seen previously- will this be the clue AC-12 needs?

Evo Industrial acquires London warehouse (GB)

Published

on

Bradda Capital has sold a prime last-mile logistics site in southeast London to Evo Industrial for over €9.3m (£8m). The 3.4-acre site, One Church Manorway, is located in an established industrial area in Erith and has significant development potential. In September 2020, Bradda obtained planning consent to demolish the current 37,662ft² warehouse and to construct a new 60,687ft² facility with a BREEAM sustainability rating of “Very Good”.

 

David Phillips, managing director of Bradda Capital, said: “We are delighted with the level of bidding interest in the site, which reflected the strength of the logistics real estate market. It is an investment that we bought 10 years ago for income with an eye on the growing demand for warehousing in the London area. With leases at expiry, we realised the potential for adding significant value by securing planning consent for a much larger facility of more than three times the volume”.

Search continues for Dublin man missing in US Rocky Mountains

Published

on

US park rangers are searching for a 27-year-old Dubliner missing in Grand Teton National Park in the state of Wyoming after his car was found at the start of a hiking trail.

Cian McLaughlin, who studied at Dublin Institute of Technology and works as a snowboard instructor at Jackson Hole in the Rocky Mountains, has not been seen for almost a week.

The Dublin man was reported missing on Sunday morning by Teton County Sheriff’s Office. His car was later found at the start of a hiking trail in the 310,000-acre park.

The National Park Service, the US government agency leading the search for Mr McLaughlin, said he was last seen in the town of Jackson last Tuesday afternoon.

He failed to report for work in Jackson on Thursday and the local sheriff’s office received a missing-person report late on Saturday night.

Grand Teton National Park was contacted early on Sunday when the sheriff’s office received information indicating that Mr McLaughlin may be hiking in the park. A spokeswoman for the National Park Service (NPS) said that park teams with search dogs were out searching the park for the missing man.

She said that Mr McLaughlin is believed to have headed out for a “day hike” without a backpack with him but that “no one knows where he intended to go or where he did go”.

His car was located at Lupine Meadows Trailhead on Sunday morning at an elevation of 6,732ft. The NPS spokeswoman said that there is still snow in the park at about 8,000ft.

Ground-search operations

“Aerial reconnaissance and ground-search operations were conducted in high probability areas in the park on Sunday, June 13th, in search of McLaughlin with no evidence or leads about his whereabouts. Search operations will continue early Monday morning, June 14th,” said the NPS.

In a public appeal, the NPS called on anyone travelling in “backcountry” inside the park since last Tuesday to come forward if they have any information about Mr McLaughlin.

The Dubliner’s Facebook page says he started working at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort last December and that he previously lived in the French ski resort of Chamonix.
