Record subs indulge in a spot of horse play

THE Daily Record’s sub-editors have indulged in a bit of horse play in today’s coverage of the man dubbed ‘horseboy’, whom has become an internet sensation after he was snapped on Google Streetview in an Aberdeen street – complete with a horse head mask.

In a full-page splash by reporter, Victoria Allan, of Aberdeen-based North Scot Press Agency, the main heading is: ‘Neighbourhood Watch’ and a caption reads: ‘Nagging Question: Horseboy Hits the Streets’.

Not content with this equine overkill, if you turn to the leader page, the third leader article is headlined: ‘Neigh Bother’, and it ends by asking: ”But who is he? At this stage, we’re not st-able to say.”
