Scottish Football Association sued over abuse
A group of people who were abused as children are taking legal action against the Scottish Football Association (SFA).
They said they were abused by coaches or referees in the Scottish game.An interim report into child protection within football, published last week, found policies in Scotland were "not fit for purpose".
SFA chief executive Ian Maxwell said, however, that Scottish football was "a safe place for children".
Janine Rennie of the survivors charity Wellbeing Scotland said: "The beginning of civil legal proceedings against the Scottish Football Association by survivors is their absolute right and is an important part of them claiming some measure of justice they have long been denied.
"Restitution of this kind is a small part of the journey for these brave people.
"They were disbelieved and ignored by the authorities for years but they are taking back control and now the SFA have admitted their terrible failings I hope they will deal with this matter with decency and transparency." http://ukdth.com/toshiba-laptop-customer-service.php
