A bizarre row, described by one bystander as "dynamite", has broken out among the Scottish judiciary. Scotland's most senior wig, Lord McCluskey, has criticised the Crown's handling of a murder case in Glasgow High Court. Lord Hardie, the Lord Advocate and head of prosecutions in Scotland, has broken with tradition and countered that Lord McCluskey spoke "in ignorance of the background to this case".
