The Edinburgh Evening News only contained good news on Thursday
Edinburgh's evening paper has taken the unusual step of only containing "good" news for a day.

An editorial in Thursday's Edinburgh Evening News said it was the same size and price but, for a day, the negative sides of life had been set aside.

It also said readers would find only uplifting and positive stories.

They ranged from the naming of local MP Alistair Darling as Chancellor of the Exchequer to a drop in the number of new syphilis cases in the city.
