Edi Stark talks to Elish Angiolini, Lord Advocate for Scotland, about how her Govan roots are a far cry from the Crown Office and how she has been a passionate legal moderniser.
Elish Angiolini talks for the first time about how being in the Polmont railway accident at the age of 24, which involved fatalities in her carriage, caused her to value and make the most of every second of life since. She admits that every prosecutor including herself has fear for their family and must take security precautions and on a personal note, she talks about her father who was a coal merchant and her mother who at 94 still rules with a rod of iron. She has one word for why she fell in love with her husband who gave up his work as a hairdresser to look after their two sons. Lust!
