Talk of the Town: Emma casts her spell on Murray’s march

Have your say

ANDY Murray won’t be short of celebrity support when he steps on to Centre Court at Wimbledon this afternoon – and it seems the superstar Scot could even have a bit of magic in his corner.

The Royal Box is likely to be packed with the rich and famous, but on Twitter Andy has received the backing of Hermione herself, with Emma Watson showing her enthusiasm by tweeting “Murray Murray Murray!!!”.

Perhaps she’s chanting a spell to help him through to the final.

Warden is silver lining to garden party clouds

A rainy day in July and horrendous traffic around Holyrood could only mean one thing – the Queen was hosting her annual garden party.

The monarch must believe that it always rains in the Capital, as once again party-goers were left trying to keep their impressive hats out of the summer showers.

The event also left a city traffic warden trying to sort out the chaos at junctions on the Royal Mile in the poor weather - surely he deserves an invite next year?

Crumbs, that’s bold

When you work on the third floor of an office building you don’t expect to hear a knock on the window – but it seems the Capital’s seagulls are not shy, with one city worker reporting a hungry bird tapping on his window every day in the hope of getting his beak round a free biscuit.

Planning in advance

We might live in a country with some of the worst weather in the UK, but it seems hardy Scots are happy to put up with it rather then splashing the cash. A survey by revealed Scots spend less than anywhere in the UK on last minute trips, but perhaps we are just more organised.
