AT THE risk of upsetting our Caledonian cousins, the story that Det Insp Steve Duffy is a top-notch bagpipe player has got us thinking.

Police were involved a few years back with trialling those mosquito devices, which emit a high-pitched squeal that drives troublesome youths away from shopping centres.

Perhaps it would have been more economical to get DI Duffy out there with his bagpipes. Only joking Steve – we wish you well in your fundraising.
