Government plans for an advertising blackout on powdered baby milk were announced. The aim was to convince more mums that “breast is best”. New regulations brought in would make it illegal to advertise baby milk in magazines read by mothers.

Hundreds of Rangers fans were locked out of the Old Firm match against Celtic at Ibrox, despite having valid tickets for the game. A faulty computer in the Broomloan Stand reported the area was full when there were still empty seats.

There was election chaos in South Africa with just 21,000 votes counted across the country after 12 hours. The National Party was expected to win. However, Nelson Mandela’s ANC Party went on to take control of the country.

Six Highland cattle were shipped back home to Scotland by a Catholic priest after the Canadian Government ordered them to be slaughtered. Father Bernie MacDonald, whose family came from Barra, refused to get rid of his tiny herd of cows. The Canadian Government said that all cattle imported from the UK had to be killed in a bid to reduce the spread of BSE.

There were rumours Celtic Park would be moving by four feet! Architects advised the Glasgow club their planned 60,000-seater stadium should be moved the short distance because of dangerous mineshafts in the area. Celtic planned to move to the national stadium, Hampden Park, during the reconstruction work.

Football legend Jim Baxter told The Sunday Post that he would never drink again. After spending seven weeks in Glasgow Royal Infirmary following his second liver transplant, the former Rangers and Scotland midfielder said he was feeling stronger and fitter. Baxter eventually died of pancreatic cancer in 2001. His ashes were buried at Rangers’ Ibrox Stadium, and a statue was erected in his honour at his home town, Hill of Beath, in Fife.

Fire chiefs identified the worst street in Scotland for hoax calls.

The previous year, the fire service received 115 prank calls from public phones in Summerhill Road, in Glasgow’s Drumchapel.

An initiative was drawn up to reduce the number of such calls after 10-year-old David Bathgate was knocked down and killed by a fire engine on its way to what turned out to be a false alarm.
