Mr Slater, originally from Muir of Ord, near Inverness, said: "They took some champagne out to the pole and I used my legs as a primitive ice bucket and wedged the bottle in there and passed it around - I don't know how we did it but it went down quite well."

Mr Slater described how Harry was always at the centre of light-hearted activities, such as improvising a game of cricket or making a latrine look like a castle. There was always something, and he usually instigated it."

The wife, who wished to remain anonymous, went into Noah’s Yard — which has a history of changing the words on its sign — on Tuesday to ask for the sign to be put up at the weekend.


She said the reason behind her doing it was to name and shame her husband after finding out he allegedly had an affair.

Panel decision

There are a number of possible reasons why a school might decide to ban the use of mobile phones - although any connection with 'health and safety' is tenuous. Choosing to explain its policy in this way via a sign on the school gate does nothing to help pupils and parents understand the reason(s) for the ban in this school. It would be better for all concerned if the specific reason for the school's policy was made clear rather than use health and safety as an excuse.
