World’s media descend upon Kirkcaldy

GORDON Brown about to become Prime Minister not only had TV crews from around the world swarming around his ‘coronation’ – two days ago, in Manchester – where he was made leader of the Labour Party.

His home town of Kirkcaldy has also seen the world’s media descend upon it.

For instance, when a Dutch TV crew turned up at his former secondary school, Kirkcaldy High, it’s believed they were the 30th crew to have visited.

The newly-coined ‘Gordon Brown Trail’ includes not just the school, but St Bryce Kirk and Raith Rovers FC.
