The midnight fireworks above Edinburgh Castle will be re-signed to allow up to 4000 revellers at an open-air ceilidh in the heart of the Royal Mile to see the display under a host of changes unveiled by organisers today.

Last year’s street party, which has had an overall capacity of 75,000 in recent years, was marred by prolonged crowd congestion at the top of The Mound.

‘ Fines paid by footballers to the Scottish Football Association (SFA) should be passed on to good causes, an SNP MSP has said ‘

#TNSReport – Oct.07: James Dornan has written to SFA chief executive Stewart Regan seeking more information about how such fines are used and calling on the body to “play a leading role” in supporting efforts to tackle the refugee crisis.

Last week Celtic striker Leigh Griffiths was handed a suspended two-match ban and fined £2,500 after admitting singing an offensive song about former Hearts player Rudi Skacel.

The former Hibernian forward was admonished by a sheriff after admitting the incident in court but was punished by the SFA.

Mr Dornan, whose Glasgow Cathcart constituency includes Hampden Park, praised the “community ethos” at the heart of many Scottish football clubs, singling out Hamilton Accies and Queen’s Park.
