I’ve never lived anywhere with such oddly specific crimes since. The SJ gives me a sense of continuity in this fraught world, Nick 😃

I hate to tell you this, but my mate is a press officer for the Wiltshire Police.

Why is this categorised as "Scottish news"? It's about Fatty from the Beano's Bash Street Kids being renamed Freddy (for political correctness reasons, no doubt). Beano isn't only sold in Scotland, so this is national news, not local.

More importantly DC Thompson, publishers of the Beano, are a big Dundee company so I can see the logic.
