Six RAF fighter jets were scrambled to intercept Russian aircraft as they approached British airspace, the Ministry of Defence has said.

The Russian bombers were tracked heading towards the north-west coast of Scotland on Saturday.

It prompted the air force to deploy three pairs of Typhoons from its Quick Reaction Alert programme.

Two pairs left from RAF Lossiemouth in Moray, while the third flew from RAF Coningsby in Lincolnshire

Leading Swedish broadsheet @SvD uses today’s front page and two inside pages to highlight the current constitutional crisis between England and Scotland – our Nordic neighbour treats the crisis more seriously than the UK’s London-centric press. 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿🇸🇪

The Milan scrape was only notable because they made their findings public.

If a university scraping feeds did it, it's safe to assume other, bigger organizations have been doing it for much longer.

@Humanistforindy @Jacobitejen it's really worth having a look. The Hub is a handy way of keeping up with blogs like Wings, Ginger Dug etc and we need a few different way of keeping in touch. I like the Hub anyway! 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿

There's an exodus to Mastodon from Twitter happening in Spain, for the same reason it's happening in Scotland — Twitter's censoring of Independence supporters.

What happening tooters. It's that weird twilight zone between xmas and new year and I don't know what's going on

So, job done.

A little homage to the whole indy movement and especially the yes bikers and all of the indy dugs.
