What the papers say - THE SCOTSMAN

News stand

Thousands of commuters were delayed on one of Scotland's busiest rail routes after a cable fire brought chaos to services. Trains in Fife were suspended for five hours after the fire broke out in an unstaffed building, knocking out signalling and communications equipment from Edinburgh to Dundee.

Environmentalists have condemned a move by Historic Scotland which could see partially-treated sewage being pumped into Loch Ness. A wastewater treatment plant built as part of a £5M visitor centre at Urquhart Castle failed to meet tight Scottish Environment Protection Agency standards.

Now Historic Scotland is seeking a relaxation of pollution controls.
