And finally… trouble at the mill

Police have launched a criminal investigation into the demolition of an historic Dundee mill.

The derelict Halley’s Mill, built in 1836, was demolished by Craigie Estates in May out of safety concerns.

However, Dundee City Council said the firm did not obtain the necessary demolition warrant in order to take down a listed building, The Courier reports.

The firm’s owners could now face a fine of up to £50,000 and two years in prison if charged and convicted.

A spokesperson for Police Scotland said: “The matter is still under investigation and inquiries are continuing.”
