Schofield returning to old stomping ground

AFTER three years as education correspondent at The Scotsman, Kevin Schofield is returning to his old stomping ground of politics.

He is to join The Herald, as Scottish political correspondent, succeeding Tom Gordon, who is joining Sunday Times Scotland – as its Scottish political editor, taking over from Jason Allardyce, who is now the paper’s associate editor.

Before joining The Scotsman, Kevin reported politics for three years, for the Press Association.
