Peterhead Academy pupils enjoyed a visit from their local MP on Wednesday, with Dr Eilidh Whiteford giving a speech to the Advanced Higher Modern Studies class.

The four sixth-year students are studying the subject in advance of going to university, with a specific focus on crime and justice.

Speaking after the event, Dr. Whiteford said: “It was a pleasure meeting the students, and hearing a bit about what they’re studying in their final year of secondary school.

"We had some really productive discussions about crime and justice, and the links to poverty and home environment.”
