A 4ft tall, papier-mache haggis sparked a security alert in Scotland.

(The haggis, sporting a pink kilt and ‘honest sonsie face’, and bearing a tag which read “this haggis needs friends”, was discovered by shocked passengers in a luggage compartment on the train before the alarm was raised. It is thought the haggis was part of an art project, and had been placed on the train as a joke to mark the annual Scottish celebration Burns Night.)
