    Responding to being attacked while delivering leaflets in his ward this morning Cllr Kevin Lang said:

    "I have been doing politics a long time so I'm used to shouty, angry people but this is the first time I've ever been physically assaulted.

    "This morning, I was simply delivering my councillor newsletter around my ward, when a man came out of his house, grabbed me by the throat and stuffed the newsletter down my shirt, using all kinds of profanity as he did so. Naturally, I have reported the incident to the police.

    Scottish Liberal Democrat leader Alex Cole-Hamilton has called on the Government to spare families from soaring energy bills by cancelling October's price cap increase, accusing the Conservatives of "stalling in the face of a national emergency".

    The bold plan would save households up to £2,000 a year. The 70% increase in the energy price cap expected to be announced by Ofgem later this month would be cancelled, with the Government instead paying the shortfall to energy suppliers so that they can afford to supply customers at the current rates.
