Stone of Destiny reporter dies

On 11 April 1951, local reporter Arthur Binnie "scooped" the world's press by being first on the scene when the Stone of Destiny was discovered dumped in Arbroath Abbey.

Mr Binnie, who died on Wednesday night, had previously recounted the tale to BBC Scotland correspondent Colin Blane in an interview.
