Hutcheon Hospitalised Following Collision with Motorbike

Newsnight Scotland on Tuesday evening was meant to have included, among its guests, the Sunday Herald’s investigations editor, Paul Hutcheon.

But Hutcheon never made the BBC studio, to take part in a discussion about beleaguered MP, Jim Devine, who is being investigated by his party over his expenses claims. On his way, he was involved – while walking along the pavement – in a collision with a motorbike.

It’s understood he was in hospital until four o’clock yesterday morning and will be off work for a few days.
