A man has been arrested in connection with the death
Police were called to a house in Main Street yesterday afternoon
where they found the body of a 30-year-old man.
His death is being treated as unexplained.
A 49-year-old man has been arrested and is expected to appear in court
Women who binge drink are portrayed more negatively by the media
than men who do the same thing, according to researchers at Glasgow
They claim that news stories about women drinking excessively
are given more than double the amount of coverage than men
and that they're stigmatised, often being portrayed
It is pictures like these which will often see when the media is covering
issues with alcohol. Young girls with short skirts falling over
drunk. It may be an issue but apparently not as much as you have
been led to believe. Images of women binge drinking appear more often in
the media, even though men drink more. Things may happen on
nights of binge drinking such as ripped clothing and a scraped knee,
which is more likely to make women talked about. Scantily clad is used
very frequently for women. There is language is not apply to men. Women
are drinking more than the argues language is not apply to men. Women
used to but men drink twice as much twice as often, and twice as many as
them die from alcohol-related illnesses. A picture of a guy lying
in a gutter in a sweatshirt doesn't sizzle but a picture of the girl in
a nurse's uniform throwing up, that sizzle but a picture of the girl in
is a fantastic picture for the newspaper. Them find themselves
scrutiny so perhaps the only way to avoid embarrassing pictures is to
drink responsibly, regardless of your gender.
Preparations are in full swing for Stonehaven's famous
Thousands turn out on Hogmanay in the Aberdeenshire town to watch
The flaming balls are swung round the heads of the marchers then
The tradition dates back around 150 years.
It is totally unique. Nobody else done it. Lots of places have
fireworks and bands but we are the only ones to actually have the
fireballs. It is just who we are. Ambitious plans are underway
to restore an historic Fife theatre which has lain derelict
for nearly two decades. Work is taking place
to transform the King's Theatre on Kirkcaldy's High Street
into a 2,000-seater venue. Those behind the project hope it
would help revitalise the town. Following in the footsteps of
generations of Fifa's. It was reborn as a hippodrome. It played live
music in the 1916. It was first admitted musical
hall and cinema. In 77, they did a massive refurbishment of this room.
Stephen Harper tries to bring back the glory days and even in this
dilapidated state, it is still possible to imagine how grand this
auditorium once was. There was a lot of work to be done. We held the
essence and made sure any damage. Welcome the theatre began in 1904.
It open to Macri years later. Plans for the new theatre were big news. I
have come to the galleries, where they have got other copy of the
press in 1984. There were a couple of illustration said, one in
particular which is the grandeur of the auditorium. This grainy photo
weight is one of the few images remaining which shows the original
grand interior of the building. But it closed in 2000 and quickly fell
into disrepair. Now the vision is to create a 2000 seater venue to
attract bands. A restaurant, bar and function suites are also part of the
plan. The project team believe could transform the town. The whole idea
and of this is to have a unique landmark to bring people back to the
town who think live entertainment will do. Right now, the priority is
to get the roof back on and keep up the rain and pigeons. The hope
though is that this data will entertain generations to come.
Sport now, and there are four matches in the Premiership this
evening - among them, Celtic at home to Ross County -
the league leaders looking for their 14th consecutive win
Hearts, meanwhile, are celebrating their first under
After two draws and a defeat in his first three games,
his team beat Kilmarnock at Tynecastle last night,
As these photographers realised, Win, lose or draw, Ian Castro was
likely to be the main story from Tynecastle. The headlines today, all
about the release of getting that first win. Colin Paterson! Couibaly
again. He is Jamie Walker. The satisfaction marooned in relief. I
think... And that stems from the fact that the players have worked so
well throughout their time here. We have made small improvements in
play. Satisfaction tempered by news that Calum Paterson will be out for
up to nine months with a knee injury picked up. Derek Magennis watched
his Aberdeen team take the lead against Hamilton. The bronze then
conceded a controversial penalty. Danic goes, and it is a penalty
kick. And it equalises for Hamilton a confident penalty kick. The dons
came out on top. Four points behind Rangers in what looks like the race
for second place. The Ibrox club play Saint Johnstone tonight in one
of four premiership matches. Generally dry and settled across the
country. Windy in the North West and chilly in the North East.
Temperatures down to freezing. In the North West, the threat of rain.
Elsewhere, the winds are lighter. Temperatures 4-6 office. Where we
have clear conditions, closer to freezing. Tomorrow, high pressure
not to far away to the south, at the tightly packed is about this weather
front threaten outbreaks of rain in tightly packed is about this weather
the far north-west. But for many, another largely dry in cloudy day.
There will be some sunshine though. And perhaps brighter moments in
towards West Central Scotland. But generally dry in cloudy afternoon.
Temperatures from those 8-10 C. Around the West Coast, those winds
strong. Gusting to gale force would outbreaks of rain. Fringing into
parts of Sunderland. Later on, those high winds transferring the Orkney
and Shetland. Rest of the afternoon into the evening, patchy rain edges
its way south eastwards. Come Friday, a wet day in store. Perhaps
drifting as far south as Glasgow and a few spots across the hills.
Temperatures milder than we have seen and in the north-east, into the
teens. But that rain becomes a problem on Saturday because the
edges its way southwards but the timing is open to doubt. It should
be south of the border come the bells but it is one to watch. Behind
it, as we had to the 1st of January, a blast of cold with the of wintry
showers to welcome the New Year. I'll be back with the late bulletin
at the later time of 10:40pm. Until then, from everyone on the
team right across the country,
