Weekly Roundup - 30th November

Published 30 November 2018

Hello, and welcome to the latest edition of Weekly Roundup, bringing you the best in Scottish policing news from the past seven days.

The Police Scotland Youth Volunteers have been busy recently, with the Stranraer group attending a host of events during November including fireworks displays and Remembrance Day gatherings.

Also this week, we announced we are working with the Scottish Government on their festive drink-driving campaign, and we have a new featured video article on the website, where we travel down to Blairfield Farm in Ayrshire to catch up with PC Rosalind Semple of the Mounted Unit to find out how the officers are trained for crowd control operations, and meet some of the unit's noble steeds.

Meanwhile, a man has been convicted of non-recent sexual assaults in East Lothian, two men have been charged in connection with a fire in Inverkeithing, and a man has been charged following a break in to an Edinburgh yoga centre.

In other news, a 25-year-old male has been sentenced for the murder of Hannah Dorans, a man has been arrested after a death in Thurso, and there was a £50k drug recovery in Inverness.

This week Police Scotland gave its full support to White Ribbon Day's 16 Days of Action to help eradicate violence against women.

And finally, a drunk driver who fled the scene of a collision was arrested after being sniffed out by Police Dog Wade.

That's it for this week, folks. Stay safe, have a great weekend, and we'll see you again next Friday.
