Justice secretary Humza Yousaf has said he will re-examine all options for the devolution of railway policing. The Scotsman revealed earlier this month that controversial plans to merge British Transport Police (BTP) and Police Scotland are set to be scrapped. A report published yesterday by Police Scotland said it was not possible to give a go-live date for the merger due to ongoing concerns. Mr Yousaf, who took over as justice secretary from Michael Matheson earlier this year, said he was now willing to explore other options.
