Stirling Council has come under fire from its own members after it was revealed that it had auctioned a rare work by St Thomas Aquinas for nearly£26,000.

Chief executive Keith Yates said the decision was a difficult one, 'but if it meant using the proceeds from the sale to keep the central library open on a Saturday, then the council felt it was a decision that had to be made'.

Councillors in Edinburgh were also accused of betraying their heritage this week as the city council sold the first of many lots of rare books in an attempt to raise£170,000.
