Man jailed for letting young daughter wear sporran

A man has been jailed for 18 months for allowing his three-year-old daughter to wear a sporran.

Jack Gascoigne, 38, allowed his daughter to wear the offending kilt accessory and filmed her on his mobile phone. Nursery staff spotted the abuse when the child, known only as ‘Girl McA’, spoke at daycare about the great empiricists, insisted on watching repeats of Balamory, and refused to sing nursery rhymes which did not go to the tune of Mull of Kintyre. They alerted the police, who arrested Mr Gascoigne immediately.

Sentencing, Judge Nesmyth said: ‘Had the nursery workers not called the authorities, I am convinced you would have allowed your daughter to wear a kilt and play the bagpipes. A custodial sentence is the only suitable punishment for such wickedness. Take him doon, laddies.’
