Drug raids see 16 people detained in Edinburgh and East Lothian More than 100 officers took part in the raids which recovered heroin and £200,000 in cash About £30,000 worth of heroin and more than £200,000 in cash has been seized during raids by police in the Lothians. Police Scotland said it had detained 16 people after officers targeted properties in the south and east of Edinburgh. The force said the raids were part of efforts to combat suspected drug dealers and serious organised crime in Edinburgh and East Lothian. More than 100 officers took part in the raids on Wednesday. Organised criminals Det Supt Gareth Blair, of Police Scotland, said: "People should be reassured that Police Scotland is committed to making communities safer and more secure through targeted and intelligence-led policing, alongside work with local partners. "We will be relentless in our pursuit of drug dealers and serious and organised criminals whose activities cause so much harm, and we would encourage the public to play their part in this effort by providing us with information." Justice Secretary Kenny MacAskill said: "Drug dealing and serious organised crime are blights on our communities and the malicious actions of a small minority can have a devastating effect on the wider population. "Today's activity shows the police are taking a tough approach to crime and disrupting the criminal actions of a small minority - getting them off our streets and out of our neighbourhoods."

Cashier embezzled cash for gambling

Print Lockerbie cashier Linda Campbell embezzled £77,000 A court has heard how a cashier in a solicitors' office embezzled tens of thousands of pounds to feed her online gambling habit. Linda Campbell, 53, of High Street, Lockerbie, took the cash while working for Henderson and Mackay, where she was described as a trusted member of staff. Ms Campbell had worked at the solicitors since 2004 and was in charge of bookkeeping. She admitted taking £77,000 between June 2010 and July the following year. Dumfries Sheriff Court was told she was found out when police were called in to investigate after money was found to be missing from the office account. She subsequently admitted diverting cheques into her own account. The court heard that Campbell was sacked and had to sell her home in a bid to repay the cash. Sheriff Kenneth Ross called for background reports and deferred sentence until 31 May. More on This Story

Fibre-glass firm plans share deal

Stirling insulation firm Superglass announces £12.2m refinancing plan Superglass said restructuring would provide headroom to grow the business Superglass continues revival plan Stirling insulation firm Superglass has announced plans for a £12.2m share placing as it attempts to restructure its debts. The deal would see the company use the funding to repay £3m owed to Clydesdale Bank, which has also agreed to exchange £6.5m of debt into convertible shares. The move would also cut the firm's debt from £12m to £2.5m. Superglass also announced increased losses in the first six months of trading this year. The Stirlingshire firm said the restructuring would provide them with cash of at least £7.6m which would "provide Superglass with the necessary headroom to grow the business". However, it would also give Clydesdale Bank the right to receive 50% of the firm's profit after tax. Moving markets Superglass also warned "if for any reason the refinancing does not proceed, it is likely that existing shareholders' ordinary shares would have no value and that the company would likely enter into administration or some other form of insolvency procedure". Part of the deal would also see Superglass cancel its shares on the London Stock Exchange main market and transfer to the AIM. John Colley, non-executive chairman, said: "With the strong support of the Clydesdale Bank and investors we remain confident of completing this transformational refinancing which will provide Superglass with a considerably strengthened and sustainable long-term capital structure. "The proposed refinancing will leave the company very well placed to benefit from any resurgence in market volumes and the efficiencies from its recent capital investment programme." Falling revenue The company said it was still experiencing "extremely challenging" trading conditions. Revenue for the first six months of the year up to February 2013 down 20% at £13.7m, compared with the same period last year. Losses before taxation, exceptional items and amortisation of intangible assets stood at £1.6m, double the figure from 2012. However, Superglass said there were grounds for optimism. It expects a gradual increase in UK housebuilding activity from 2014 onwards as government schemes come online, and that demand will pick up when the Green Deal initiative became fully operational.

Sharp warning on athletics cheats

Lynsey Sharp says drugs are a 'huge problem' in athletics   Lynsey Sharp says drugs are a "huge problem" in athletics after being upgraded to European 800m gold following a doping scandal. Scotland's athlete of the year is now 2012 European champion after Russian Yelena Arzhakova received a two-year doping ban. "It's a huge problem," Sharp, 22, told BBC Scotland. "There's a lot of people being caught, but it's nothing compared to the amount of people getting away with it." Arzhakova was banned following an "abnormal haemoglobin profile in her biological passport" and Sharp believes the issue of drug cheating is a "depressing" problem for athletics and much more common than is widely known. "If you spoke to any athlete, they would say there's a lot of people who get away with it and probably don't get caught," said Sharp. ?If you spoke to any athlete, they would say there's a lot of people who get away with it and probably don't get caught? Lynsey Sharp "I'm trying to see the positives, but at the same time you're thinking 'what's the point in this?' if this sort of thing happens. "It's so disappointing that it's still an issue in the sport. The 800m in particular is pretty bad for it; it's depressing. "This is someone (Arzhakova) I've competed against for the last two years. I've felt like I've got to know her and we would acknowledge each other and smile and say hi. It's disappointing, but at the same time I'm happy she's been caught." Sharp ran a personal best of two minutes 1.52 seconds in Helsinki last June but finished 2.01 seconds behind winner Arzhakova. "I killed myself that day - it was my fourth race in a week and I gave it my all in the last 100 metres," she said. "I literally feel I gave the most that day in that field, so it's nice to eventually be rewarded with a gold medal." Sharp was a controversial pick for Team GB for London 2012 after being chosen ahead of Jemma Simpson, Marilyn Okoro, Emma Jackson and Jenny Meadows despite failing to record the Olympic qualifying time. She reached the semi-finals in London but failed to qualify for a final in which Arzhakova finished sixth. The gold medal was won by Russia's Mariya Savinova in 1:56.19. Sharp, however, says she is happy to now call herself European champion. "It's a great feeling, but there's loads of emotions," she said. "I was honestly happy I've been upgraded, but at the same time disappointed that another athlete in the sport and my event has been done. "And I'm also disappointed that I wasn't able to do a lap of honour and stand on the podium and have my national anthem playing and be European champion from that day. Should Arzhakova choose not to challenge her suspension or fails with an appeal, Scottish Athletics could host a medal ceremony for Sharp, possibly at their annual awards dinner in the autumn. Sharp added: "That would be awesome. It would be nice to experience that. It would be a nice touch."

Third bid for supermarket rejected

Jedburgh supermarket bid rejected A third attempt to develop a supermarket on the site of a former timber factory in the Borders has been rejected by councillors. Developer James Brown wanted to build a store and petrol station on the outskirts of Jedburgh. Planning officials had advised councillors to reject the application. Two previous bids to site a supermarket on land formerly occupied by Oregon Timber Frame Ltd had already been turned down. The latest application was for planning permission in principle, with detailed designs to come at a later stage. The scheme had attracted support and criticism in Jedburgh itself. Town centre traders feared it could have an adverse effect on their businesses. However, many Jedburgh residents were keen to see increased competition in the town, and the local community council had backed the application. Council planning officials said the land was zoned for "employment" and not retail and argued that giving the go-ahead would create an "undesirable precedent". Their report also stated that the proposed store would have an adverse effect on the viability of the town centre as a retail area. They advised planning committee members to refuse the application and they followed that recommendation. More on This Story 21 JANUARY 2010, SOUTH OF SCOTLAND Related Internet links

Man raped woman in bed with partner

Print George Lafferty raped woman as she slept with partner A man who raped a woman while she slept beside her partner has been jailed for four-and-a-half years. George Lafferty, from Paisley, was convicted of carrying out the attack at a property in the Renfrewshire town on 13 November 2011. The High Court in Glasgow heard how the 46-year-old was caught after texting his victim days later to say sorry for what he had done. Judge Lord Stewart also placed Lafferty on the sex offenders register. Lafferty was convicted following an earlier trial at the High Court in Dumbarton. Jailing him at the High Court in Glasgow, Lord Stewart said: "This happened while the complainer and her partner were asleep together in a double bed." DNA found The judge went on: "She did not wake up and neither did her partner. Your victim would have been none the wiser if you had not texted her days later to tell her what you had done and to say sorry." The judge said the attack would "not have come to light" had he not admitted it in the message. The court earlier heard how the woman had taken some alcohol and a sleeping pill prior to being attacked. DNA from Lafferty was later found on the victim's clothing. More on This Story

Cable wants RBS prosecution decision

Vince Cable calls for RBS prosecutions decision Vince Cable said public interest in the banking sector had not dissipated Business Secretary Vince Cable has written to the Scottish legal authorities urging a rapid decision on whether to prosecute former directors of Royal Bank of Scotland. Mr Cable said the matter had been referred to them in January last year. He said he was very keen for a decision to be reached as quickly as possible to maintain public confidence. RBS, which has its headquarters in Edinburgh, needed a £45.5bn taxpayer-funded bailout in October 2008. In December 2011, a report by banking regulator the Financial Services Authority (FSA) said RBS, which owns Nat West and Ulster Bank, was brought to its knees by "multiple poor decisions" and a £50bn "gamble" on buying Dutch bank ABN Amro. The report shone a light on the poor relations between the FSA and RBS and said chief executive Fred Goodwin's "assertive and robust" management style was flagged as a potential risk as early as 2003, four years before the disastrous ABN Amro deal. The Royal Bank of Scotland is now largely owned by the taxpayer In January 2012, a month after the FSA report, Mr Goodwin was stripped of the knighthood he was awarded for services to banking. Months later, the Crown Office in Scotland confirmed an investigation had been under way for some time because of "the degree of public concern about recently reported issues in the banking sector". In a letter to Westminster's top Scottish law officer - Advocate General for Scotland, Lord Wallace - Mr Cable asked for an update on the progress of the case but insisted he was "not seeking to influence the outcome" of the legal process. The business secretary told his fellow Liberal Democrat: "There is, as you will know, considerable public concern about the actions of the directors of RBS prior to its insolvency. "Following the release of the FSA's report into the failure of RBS I sought legal advice on what if any enforcement action was appropriate and was advised that the Crown Office and Procurator Fiscal Service (COPFS) should consider a possible prosecution. "Given that this matter was referred to them in January 2012, I am very keen for a decision to be reached as quickly as possible in order to maintain public confidence in the efficiency of the decision-making process." Mr Goodwin was in charge of RBS in the run-up to its near collapse in 2008 Mr Cable added that "public and media interest in the banking sector and RBS have not dissipated". Earlier this month more than 12,000 private shareholders and 100 institutional investors raised a class action against the bank. It relates to a £12bn rights issue by RBS in 2008 to shore up its balance sheet after its disastrous acquisition of ABN Amro. Mr Goodwin is among those named in the action, along with ex-chairman Sir Tom McKillop and senior figures Johnny Cameron and Guy Whittaker. Mr Cable has already instructed officials at his own department to look at the downfall of HBOS and whether there are grounds for banning former directors from holding boardroom positions.

Child obesity level 'still too high'

Primary one obesity 'has been too high' for more than a decade Boys are consistently more likely to be clinically overweight or obese than girls, the statistics suggest Extra cash for Scots PE lessons Obesity in Scotland's primary one pupils has remained at "worryingly" high levels for more than a decade, a leading public health consultant said. New figures for 2011-12 suggest about 15% of children in the age group were clinically overweight or obese. The figures have remained at around the same level since 2000. Continue reading the main story ?Start Quote We are talking about a threshold where the weight will have impact on children's life and future health? End Quote Dr Rachel Wood Public health consultant Public health medicine consultant Dr Rachael Wood warned the consistently high figures were "undoubtedly of concern" and needed tackling. "In some ways it's good news, in that the big increases we were seeing in the 90s have stabilised," she said. "But they have stabilised at too high a level. We are talking about a threshold where the weight will have impact on children's life and future health. "That's what we need to tackle. It's a difficult thing to shift." She added that research suggested that diet was improving, but that children were still consuming too much sugar and saturated fat. A total of 52,139 children of primary one age were weighed and measured for the study of body mass index statistics. The statistics showed that 14.9% of the age group were overweight, obese or severely obese. Childhood obesity can lead to health problems in later life, including heart disease, diabetes, osteoarthritis and increased risk of certain cancers, the report said. Health inequality The data also suggested that children in deprived areas were far more likely to be overweight or obese. In the least deprived areas about 81% of children were classified as healthy weight while in the most deprived areas 74% were classified as healthy weight. Dr Wood said that the inequality was "quite marked", and warned that it was likely to widen further as the health and diet of children in more affluent areas gradually improved. The figures also revealed a consistent difference in obesity levels between genders, with boys more likely to be clinically overweight or underweight than girls. "That is also consistent," Dr Wood said. "We need to understand why - I think at the moment that's not very well understood." Data for the percentage of children who are underweight was included in the study for the first time. Lanarkshire had the highest number at risk of being underweight at about 3.4% of primary one pupils, compared with an average of around 1.3%. 'Right direction' Sport Minister Shona Robison said there was a "small but encouraging" move in the right direction. She pointed to the small increase in the number of primary one children classed as healthy weight compared with last year. "A key focus of our action to cut obesity is to focus on early years, where evidence suggests the greatest impact can be made," she said. "We are supporting child healthy weight interventions and are increasing opportunities for children to get involved in sport and physical activity, through active schools and our target of all primary children having two hours of PE lessons a week." Figures from 2012 showed that 84% of primary schools were providing two hours of PE per week to all pupils. More on This Story 29 MARCH 2012, SCOTLAND POLITICS Related Internet links
