Winds of up to 100mph battered Stirlingshire yesterday (Thursday).

More than 20 schools in the Stirling area were closed and the gusts brought down trees causing blocked roads and widespread power cuts.

Residents in Dunblane, Callander and Killearn suffered power cuts and many commuters were forced to stay at home because of blocked roads and suspension of trains across the entire rail network in Scotland.

She caught her foot on a piece of wood sticking out from some stairs during the tour and fell, suffering a fracture of her ankle.

IT’S a fair swap. The Killers will bring the sunshine and we’ll give them our whisky.

OK, so the last week has been lovely and hot anyway but just to be sure, drummer Ronnie Vannucci Jr has vowed to pocket the Las Vegas sunshine, “divide it into my hand luggage and bring it to Scotland. That’s a fair trade”.

All he wants in return is whisky.

And he’s not even asking for a freebie. Instead he’s planning to go to the Glengoyne Distillery, near Killearn, Stirlingshire, on Monday.

More than 100 kids gathered for a drunken party in a posh village after telling parents they were going to a sleepover with pals.

And police yesterday slammed parents as naive after revealing they were forced to “babysit” drunk 13 and 14-year-olds.

About 30 litres of booze were confiscated from kids at the party in Killearn, Stirlingshire, which was organised via Facebook.
