Alarm bells were ringing at a presentation being made by managers to staff the other day at the Herald & Times Group, publishers of, among others, The Herald, Evening Times and Sunday Herald newspapers.
No, not about the travails of the newspaper publishing business. Literally, alarm bells were ringing. At a staff meeting held at nearby Glasgow Caledonian University, proceedings were interrupted by a fire alarm going off.
Cue fire engines but, thankfully, nothing more dramatic.
