[A report on the memorial service for Lord Fraser of Carmyllie was published yesterday on the STV News website. It reads in part:]
Friends, family and former colleagues have paid their last respects at a thanksgiving service to Lord Fraser of Carmyllie, the former Conservative MP and Lord Advocate who died suddenly last month.
The peer served in Margaret Thatcher and John Major's governments and drew up the indictments against the two Libyan men accused of orchestrating the Lockerbie bombing. (...)
A string of Tory grandees filed in to Dundee Parish Church St Mary's for what was described as a moving and humorous tribute to one of the party's elder statesmen.
Scottish Conservative leader Ruth Davidson said: "It is a sad day. Peter was a huge personality and he served both in Parliament and in Government with great intelligence but also a great deal of wit and humour and that's what we remember today." (...)
Former foreign secretary Malcolm Rifkind said: "Peter had a lot of specialist knowledge to provide on legal issues.
"Obviously he was associated with the Lockerbie affair and put a huge amount of effort into that and made a fantastic and important and permanent contribution to that work, but more broadly he had a range of interests and, of course, in the later years in the House of Lords he was amongst other experts and I know they respected him greatly as well."
