Busting out

23rd October 1998 at 01:00
Glasgow polis were doing their best to promote the anti-drugs message by holding a fun run for 500 senior primary pupils in the east end. The kids were impressed by Lord Provost Pat Lally's message of support from 10 Downing Street and even more impressed by the scantily clad cheerleaders from the Scottish Claymores.

It was judged a great success, even by a group of lads from a non-denominational school who found enough puff during the run to belt out that established Rangers' favourite, "The Brigton Billy Boys". They desisted when rebuked.

Perhaps an Anti-Drug and Anti-Sectarian Fun Run next year?
