Scotland's oldest clock works again

Scotland's oldest clock, dating back to 1565, is to be re-instated today inside the bell tower of the 14th century St. Bride's Church in Douglas, Lanarkshire. The mechanism has been overhauled by contractors working for Historic Scotland after it began to fail last year, and a new clockface has also been built.
