Nicola Sturgeon, the Scottish Health Minister and the country's Deputy First Minister has announced she is considering imposing
US-style puritanical alcohol laws.
According to reports in the Scottish Herald, local authorities are to be given the power to restrict sales of alcohol to those over the age of 21 in areas where underage drinking has supposedly proved to be a problem.
The proposed ban on under 21s buying booze follows a previous attempt by former Minister Cathy Jamieson who attempted to introduce a ban on off-licences sales to young adults.
While Jamieson's plans were widely ridiculed, Sturgeon's plan may not prove to easy to stop - largely as a result of the outright majority her party has in the Scottish Parliament.
A 62-year-old Gloucestershire back garden naturist was arrested for indecent exposure and now faces three charges of outraging public decency.
Donald Sprigg was hauled before Cheltenham Magistrates Court accused of causing his Cirencester neighbours harassment, alarm or distress , the Daily Mail reports.
Sprigg denied the charges, while his solicitor Mohammed Iqbal insisted that the neighbours who'd protested actually lived 150 metres away and had captured the allegedly indecent horticultural action from their balcony using a long-distance lens
Ironic street theatre in Soho Square
, people singing We all live in a fascist regime , when a bunch of hoodies and skinheads, er sorry, I mean undercover police, suddenly grab one of them off for arrest. (Reason for arrest was possession of articles to cause criminal damage
- although the police couldn't explain what those articles were...)
Five people dressed as zombies
, who left Soho Square and went to a nearby Starbucks, were arrested because they might go onto commit a breach of the police.
