What a find!

FRANCIS Steventon of Moffat was intrigued when he found a stack of old newspapers wedged in a large, old mirror in his attic.

But his intrigue quickly turned to surprise when he noticed the date on the Glasgow News was May 8 1912, exactly 108 years before he made his discovery.

The newspaper included details of the sinking of RMS Titanic and referenced William McMaster Murdoch, First Officer of the ship and a native of Dalbeattie.

Mr Steventon later found out the Glasgow News was printed from September 1905 to October 1915, before becoming The Evening News, and had previously gone by six different names.

He plans to donate the paper to a local museum
