Scottish council election: Professor Pongoo beats Lib Dem


A candidate who stood under the name Professor Pongoo won more first preference votes than the Scottish Liberal Democrat candidate in one of the Edinburgh City Council wards.

Climate activist Mike Ferrigan, who visits schools dressed as a penguin, stood against Stuart Bridges in Pentland Hills.

Mr Ferrigan said the Lib Dems and Labour both "talk the talk", but that "as a penguin, I can show them how to walk the walk".
