Reporting Scotland content themselves with a negative view. Things are clearly getting worse, they imply but they leave out this, in the online version:
The Scottish Prison Service said it has invested in new ways to detect drugs.Paragraph 4 of around 30
A spokesman for the SPS said it treats the issue of smuggling drugs into prisons “very seriously” and the service had “invested in technology to better detect suspicious substances and work closely with partner agencies to garner relevant intelligence”.
“We have over the last few years pointed out on many occasions, to those in our care, the dangers of using such substances. If we suspect that an item many contain such materials, then we quarantine them and do not allow them to enter a prison.”Paras 17 and 19
So they’re detecting more because they invested in technology and they’re protecting the inmates by holding back the material?
Good news story?
