Today Frank looks at the news that Edinburgh Council had to pay £250 to alter the Lord Provost’s kilt after his waist became bigger.

The expense comes amid a whirlwind year for Donald Wilson, who attended almost 900 functions and is expected to have overspent his budget by almost £250,000 come April, according to accounts seen by the News.
