Dougie Vipond

Sports presenter and drummer of rock band Deacon Blue, Dougie Vipond was in Edinburgh hosting the Excellence & Innovation Awards on behalf of the Scottish Police Services Authority.

Dougie had just finished a gruelling three-day kayaking trip for Sport Relief with his good friend, comedian Fred MacAulay.

Dougie and Fred had sailed from Glasgow via the Caledonian Canal, through Loch Lochy, Loch Oich and Loch Ness and finished in Inverness.
