SCOTLAND’s new single police force has been forced to rethink its logo after running into trouble with the Lord Lyon, the country’s official heraldic authority.

Police Scotland’s original design of a shield and Saltire was rejected as too similar to existing emblems.

Now the force has come up with a different crown and thistle badge and a slogan “Keeping People Safe”.

A source for the police force was quoted as saying: “Police failed to go through the proper channels – and they got caught.”
