Victim’s dad wants retrial

Have your say

THE father of one of the World’s End victims says the man acquitted of his daughter’s murder should be retried under the scrapping of double jeopardy laws.

Angus Sinclair was acquitted four years ago of killing teenagers Helen Scott and Christine Eadie in the Capital after the judge ruled there was insufficient evidence.

Morain Scott, 81, Helen’s father, said: “I would like to see justice for the girls, for my daughter and for Christine.

“My hopes have been up so often before that I just try and keep a level head about this.”
