Roseanna Cunningham, Cabinet Secretary for Environment, Climate Change and Land Reform attended the naming ceremony of Scottish Water’s giant Tunnel Boring Machine (TBM) for the £100m Shieldhall Tunnel yesterday.

She was accompanied by local lad, Lewis Bennett, whose winning entry was selected by judges to name the TBM Daisy the Driller.

Both VIP’s launched the TBM by pressing a button which sent a bottle of Scottish water crashing onto the front of the machine.
