Shoppers in Paisley have been banned from entering some retail outlets wearing hoods and baseball caps.And it's not just in Paisley:
Baseball caps have been banned from a chain of internet cafes in two Scottish cities, it has emerged.Why just Edinburgh and Glasgow - at least to begin with?

Easyinternetcafes - owned by Stelios Haji-Ioannou, the founder of low cost airline Easyjet - claims the headgear is linked with "deviant" behaviour.
The ban on wearing caps is to be piloted at the chain's branches in Edinburgh and Glasgow.
