Guardian Lists Scottish Press Scoops of English Court Gagging Orders

Jack Straw's son, the 'audacity' of the West Highland Free Press and former Scotsman editor, Magnus Linklater … all are mentioned in a story on The Guardian website, which claims: “Scottish newspapers have a history of serving scoops on stories which have been the subject of gagging orders passed by English courts”.

It follows yesterday's unmasking by the Sunday Herald of a footballer understood to be at the centre of a gagging order – applicable in England, but not Scotland.
