EFFIGY OF SCOTTISH POLITICAL LEADER FOUND HANGING FROM TREE AT BORDERS CEMETERY!
An effigy of First Minister Alex Salmond has been found hanging as part of a protest against the first crematorium in the Scottish Borders.
A pensioner visiting Wairds Cemetery near Melrose on Sunday called police believing it was a real body. Last year the Scottish government decided not to call in plans for a crematorium at the site. Police believe the incident may be linked to a vandal attack at Scottish Borders Council at the weekend. Councillors approved the crematorium plans in November. It will become the first such facility in the region.
As well as the effigy the protest included a horse's skull mounted on a wooden cross, three dressed dolls in a makeshift grave and what appeared to be the draped figure of a human skeleton.
HOW BIZARRE! Somebody obviously doesn't like Crematoriums in the Borders!
