SECURITY guards have been drafted into Edinburgh's G8 campsite more than a week before protesters arrive after fencing was ripped down by vandals.Can't say I'm surprised. My money's on the neds.
The controversial Craigmillar site has been coming under repeated attack at night, with large chunks of the 600 metre wire fence pulled down.

DOUBLE-DECKER buses in Edinburgh are having their exit doors sealed to combat a spate of bogus compensation claims.And who owns Lothian Buses? The Labour-controlled Edinburgh Council. And who's responsible for the compensation culture? The Labour-controlled Westminster Government. Can I be compensated for my slower bus journeys caused by the compensation culture? Perhaps I'll hire Cherie Blair: she needs the money.
