Tulkinghorn refers in his diary (The Lawyer, 9 January 1996) to two stories from "Aberdeen paper The Herald".
Is this by any chance related to the well-known Glasgow paper The Herald, which until recently had the word 'Glasgow' in the title?
I'm sure I read the same stories in the latter publication when home for the New Year. The Lawyer is usually quite good on Scottish (and Northern Irish) matters, for a London paper. A wee bit of post-Hogmanay confusion, no doubt.
