SCOTLAND'S preeminent historian has condemned as "flawed" a new report which claims the country's Catholics suffer from a higher risk of death and are more economically disadvantaged than Protestant counterparts.

Claiming “the sectarian beast is in its death throes" and was "the least of Scotland's modern social problems”, Professor Sir Tom Devine said the academic study reflected more about the effects of deindustrialisation in the central belt than religious discrimination.
