The Scotsman reports that Dr Paisley has lashed out at the way passengers flying from Edinburgh to Northern Ireland are segregated and made to wait in the cramped conditions of Gate 14 because of security arrangements that date back to the 1980’s. “Heathrow and other major airports have abandoned their special arrangements for flights to Northern Ireland.
