FRESH from his appearance at the Linlithgow Book Festival, former MP Tam Dalyell collected an honorary degree from Heriot-Watt University yesterday.

The Edinburgh-born politician, who was once Father of the House in the Commons, was recognised at a ceremony by the Riccarton university.

Mr Dalyell, who served in parliament for almost half a century, is pictured shortly after accepting the award from an institute with which he has a long history.
