Congratulations to all the TV newsreaders...

.... who managed to say
Vitas Plytnykas was found guilty at the high court in Edinburgh of killing Jolanta Bledaite in Brechin
Fiona Bruce hesitated before starting the sentence but she managed it. For non-Scots the "ch" in Brechin is as in "loch" as sound foreign to standard english.

Some brickbats to Channel 4 News who said Vitas had been in the Russian army. He had been in the Soviet army. I don't think either Russians or Lithuanians would appreciate that.
