Craig and Charlie are very sad to hear of the passing of Ian Bell. Ian was the finest journalist in the UK. His breadth of knowledge was astounding and his understanding of Scotland’s cultural and political changes over the last 30 years was unsurpassed.

His analysis was razor sharp and his eloquence was beautiful and uplifting. It is insufficient to say that he will be missed. Scotland  is genuinely diminished by his death.

RIP Ian Bell.
