THE Glasgow Times was awarded Podcast of the Year at the Scottish Press Awards.

Our weekly podcast Glasgow Crime Stories won the honour at the annual event, which recognises the best in Scottish journalism, on June 9. 

The award was collected by Norman Silvester who researches and writes the scripts for the series which is narrated by Taggart star Alex Norton. 

The weekly podcast, which is produced by Ema Sabljak, brings together the city's biggest cold cases and most shocking crimes in 20-minute episodes and features detailed reports with fresh interviews.
