TODAY is expected to be Scotland’s busiest shopping day of the year as consumers in the Capital snap up last-minute gifts.

The expected splurge comes after 1.5 million Scots shoppers splashed out as much as £323 million over the weekend, with bosses at credit giant Visa Europe predicting consumers in Scotland would spend around £101 million on cards alone. As shops braced themselves for today’s spree, bookmakers slashed the odds on an Edinburgh white Christmas from 7-2 to 2-1.
