They have been short­listed for mu­sic per­son­al­ity of the year at the Sony Ra­dio Academy Awards, along­side Scott Mills and Frank Skin­ner. ALL par­ents in Scot­land can now find out if a sex of­fender has ac­cess to their chil­dren af­ter a dis­clo­sure scheme was ex­tended across the coun­try.

Un­der the Keep­ing Chil­dren Safe ini­tia­tive, par­ents, car­ers and guardians of young­sters un­der 18 can ask the po­lice if a per­son who has con­tact with A GO­RILLA is keep­ing mum over the sex of her baby by cradling it close to her chest. Keep­ers at Dublin Zoo still do not know if the tiny west­ern low­land go­rilla is a male or a fe­male be­cause mother Lena is prov­ing pos­ses­sive. The baby weighs an es­ti­mated 1.81kg – just 4lb – and ar­rived on Sun­day. Zoo spokesman Ciaran McMa­hon said that child has a record for sex­ual of­fences against chil­dren, or other of­fences that might put their child at risk.

If it is found the per­son does pose a risk, then in­for­ma­tion may be given to the guardian as a pro­tec­tive mea­sure.

Frank Ues­beck, from the west­ern Ger­man town of Coes­feld, was five years old when he set the mes­sage afloat in 1987. that child will be taken. The scheme was ini­tially pi­loted in Tay­side in 2009 be­fore be­ing rolled out across Scot­land, with the fi­nal two forces – Strath­clyde and Loth­ian and Borders – join­ing it to­day.

So far, par­tic­i­pat­ing forces have re­ceived 160 ap­pli­ca­tions and 21 dis­clo­sures have been made. As­sis­tant Chief Con­sta­ble Iain Livingstone, lead for pub­lic pro­tec­tion at the As­so­ci­a­tion of Chief Po­lice Of­fi­cers in Scot­land (Ac­pos), said the scheme pro­vides a “valu­able ad­di­tional route to pro­tect some of the most vul­ner­a­ble and at-risk in our com­mu­ni­ties”.
