THE SCOTSMAN

News stand - What the papers say

ScottishPower has been given the green light by the government to build a £100M underground natural gas storage facility in Cheshire.

Scottish Highlanders are launching a campaign to fight plans to build an 80km corridor of electricity pylons across the glens to link a proposed wind farm in the Western Isles to the national grid. Scottish Hydro-Electric Transmission is examining the feasibility of erecting 200 pylons up to 50m high from Ullapool to Beauly near Inverness.

A plague of rats is set to descend on residential parts of Edinburgh city centre as Miller Construction starts work on the city council's new £45M headquarters near Waverley Station. The rodents are expected to head towards homes in the Old Town in an effort to find shelter and food.
