Sting in tail for Dalkeith family

A DALKEITH family have returned from the British Virgin Islands with an unusual holiday tail.

Eight-year-old Mary Henderson was shocked to discover ‘Stavros’ the scorpion in her Glebe Street bedroom a month after she and her family returned from the overseas break.

It is believed the stowaway – nicknamed Stavros – may have hidden in a shell Mary had picked up from a beach.
