Murray Scougall

For nearly a decade, Murray Scougall has specialised in writing human-interest stories for The Sunday Post. He's also had his hand crushed by Sly Stallone, interviewed a high priest witch, traded verbal jabs with Joe Frazier, stared out Morgan Freeman and been called at home by Alice Cooper from a Russian airport. He reunited, six decades on, three ex-POWs who plotted the real Great Escape during WW2 and was one of the first reporters to attend the Glasgow Airport terrorist attack. Murray lives in Lanarkshire with his fiancee, and when he's not writing he indulges his obsessions of football, movies and music.
