Respected Police Press Officer Moving On

One of most experienced police press officers in Scotland is moving on, to a post at the Scottish Executive.

At the end of the month, Ruth MacLeod becomes a senior press officer on the health desk at the Exec, after ten years with Lothian and Borders Police.

Widely respected by Scottish journalists as one of the most helpful police press officers around, she leaves as new procedures at Lothian and Borders Police restrict the freedom of its press officers to speak freely with journalists.
