The FFS Show Episode 10: Covid-19 in Dundee and Bolton, and what are school children being urged to sing?

Ferret Fact Service | Scotland's impartial fact check project GERS

Silly season maybe upon us but here at The FFS Show we are still checking the facts that matter.

Mags and Ali have reached episode 10 of our misinformation and fact-checking podcast!

To celebrate Mags looked at a spat between Manchester mayor Andy Burnham and Nicola Sturgeon over the First Minister’s Covid-19 travel restrictions, and Ali looked at the truth behind the patriotic song the UK Government was said to be encouraging school pupils to sing.
