'Scotland’s most dangerous serial killer'

Angus Sinclair: Murderer is 'Scotland’s most dangerous serial killer'

Angus Sinclair has been branded “Scotland’s most dangerous serial killer” who has taken four lives and is suspected to be responsible for three more murders. It puts him in the same category as infamous Scottish murderers Peter Tobin, Dennis Nilson and Peter Manuel, with some believing his death toll would have been much higher had he not been jailed in 1982.

Sinclair started killing when he was just 16 years old, luring seven-year-old Catherine Reehill into his house in Glasgow before sexually abusing and strangling her. He then threw her body down the stairs and said her death had been an accident. He pleaded guilty to culpable homicide for the 1961 killing and was sent to prison for ten years. The judge in this case said Sinclair was “callous, cunning and wicked” and no young girl would be safe with him around.

In 1968, Sinclair was freed and put under supervision for three years. He moved to Edinburgh where he met his wife Sarah and they married in 1970 before the family moved back to Glasgow. While he seemed to settle down into family life, in reality Sinclair started a killing spree in 1977, targeting young women. In 1982, a series of sex attacks were carried out on young girls in the Govan area of Glasgow.">DO YOU WANT TO READ MORE?

Scotland to become independent "within 20 years",
says defeated nationalist leader

(In September, 55 per cent…)
LONDON: Scotland will break away from the United Kingdom within 20 years, the defeated leader of the Scots nationalists predicted on Sunday, after a poll showed a majority of voters would back independence if another referendum were held today.

In September, 55 per cent of Scots voted to reject independence in a historic referendum after Britain's three main UK-wide parties promised to grant greater devolution to Scotland in the event of a "No" vote.

But in a surprise poll on Saturday, 52 per cent of those asked said they would now vote for a breakaway.

Disagreements over how much more power Scotland will get and over separate proposals to stop non-English lawmakers voting on matters that concern England in the British parliament have clouded the referendum's aftermath, with the Scottish Nationalist Party (SNP) accusing other parties of backsliding.

Alex Salmond, the SNP's outgoing leader who unsuccessfully spearheaded the independence campaign, said on Sunday the desire for change was so strong, even among those who voted no, that independence was now inevitable.

Asked if he thought Scotland would become independent in the next 10 or 20 years, Salmond said "Yes".

"The destination is set. But the number of stops along the way and the exact timetable I think that's to be determined," he said. "It will actually be determined by the Scottish people."

The SNP lost the referendum but has bounced back and its ratings remain high. A poll last Thursday showed 52 percent of voters planned to vote for the pro-independence party in a UK-wide election in May next year.

By contrast, the opposition Labour party, which campaigned against independence, faced a wipe-out in its traditional stronghold of Scotland, the same poll showed, raising doubts about the left-leaning party's ability to unseat Prime Minister David Cameron's Conservatives.

With the May 2015 election shaping up to be the closest in modern British political history and neither Cameron's Conservatives nor Labour currently looking like they can win an outright majority, the winner may need to rely on support from other parties.

Salmond on Sunday ruled out a coalition with the Conservatives saying there was "no chance whatsoever" of such a tie-up. He said an alliance with Labour was "unlikely" but said circumstances could change.
