In Thursday’s Courier we present day one of our two part probe into charges that leave many people going “grrr” (or similar).
We also have the somewhat unusual tale of the car left “beached” on sandbags in Angus. It’s all the result of a somewhat bizarre neighbourhood dispute. Which involves somebody parking on top of sand bags somebody else was hoping to use as a flood defence. Yikes. We have the full story.

In our soaraway sport section, we have all the latest after St Johnstone welcomed the Scottish champions, Celtic, to McDiarmid Park looking for a morale-boosting win ahead of next weeks’ cup final.
Dunfermline, East Fife and Cowdenbeath all have more on the line in their play-off encounters, and we have reporters dotted across the west coast for their semi-final first legs. Join the dots in Thursday’s Courier.
