Russian to get tourists.

A GORGEOUS model fronting a multi-million pound campaign to attract visitors to Scotland is from Russia, it was revealed yesterday.

Tourist chiefs admitted the woman starring in the new campaign for Glasgow was Marina Schlossberg. Angry Tory tourism spokesman Jamie McGrigor said: "There are plenty of pretty Scottish girls."

But Eddie Friel, of the Greater Glasgow and Clyde Valley tourist board, said: "This is an international campaign so we chose an international model for this part of it."
