How do you get a palm reading over the telephone?
The Daily Record: Bosses at Orkney Islands Council discovered workers had been ringing adult and other premium rate lines.
One even called a palmistry line while others rang competition prize lines.
Now measures are being put in place to bar any calls to inappropriate numbers by the council's 2000 workers.
Councillor Alistair Gordon added: "I am not 100 per cent sure about how you can get your palm read over the telephone but it must have been a pretty low Monday for that person."
