The editor of the Scottish News of the World stripped to his underwear before being allowed to watch a tape which revealed a Scottish politician confessing to visiting a sex club.
Bob Bird met with George McNeilage – a friend of politician Tommy Sheridan – and was told to strip to his pants to confirm he didn’t have a wire.
McNeilage said: “I was just playing a game. I had the News of the World editor standing in my living room in his boxer shorts. It was just a bizarre situation.”
