Tributes have been paid to Bill Law, a leading light in Scottish and Edinburgh aquatics, who died aged 75.

Born just up the road from Glen Street in Tollcross, Mr Law was educated at Darroch School. After leaving school, he joined Cunningham Dickson and Walker as an apprentice glazier, where he worked for ten years.

With a fall in business, Mr Law was made redundant but, that same year, he was approached by Eric Pappin, the stepfather of Jim Hill, a Warrender Baths Club colleague, and joined the Scottish Insurance Corporation.

Mr Law continued his working life in insurance with Provincial Insurance and, latterly, with Bill Kidd in his insurance broking firm, having also served for a spell as a director and chairman of the Century Building Society.
