Newspaper boobs book ready to roll

SCOTTISH newspapers feature every bit as prominently as their counterparts elsewhere throughout the UK when it comes to hunorous misprints and unfortunate headlines, many of them compiled in a book being published at the end of the week.

Included in Martin Toseland’s ‘From a Steroid Hit the Earth: The Catastrophic World of Misprints’, there’s The Scotsman typo that ends up as: Police in Hawick yesterday called off a search for a 20 year-old man who is believed to have frowned after falling into the swollen River Teviot.

The book is being published by Portico Books.
