On Sunday it was reported that the Scottish lawyer Paul McBride QC, 47, has died in his sleep on a visit to Pakistan. At age 35, he was appointed the youngest ever QC in the UK. Last year he represented Gail Sheridan, who was acquitted of perjury. Two men are currently on trial at the high court in Glasgow accused of conspiring to murder McBride, the Celtic football club manager Neil Lennon and former MSP Trish Godman by sending improvised explosive devices to them in 2011. The defendants all deny all charges against them. STV has a report on McBride’s death here.
