Dougray Scott - Dougray Scott Joins Campaign To Save Dougray Scottish Air Base
Actor Dougray Scott is backing a campaign to save the U.K.'s most northerly air defence station in his native Fife, Scotland.
The Desperate Housewives star has joined singing siblings The Proclaimers, as well as author Ian Rankin, in rallying against plans to close down Raf Leuchars.
Bosses at Britain's Ministry of Defence are considering shutting the base as part of a Strategic Defence Review, but Scott fears the proposed closure will have a disastrous effect on the local community, reports Scotland's Daily Record.
He tells the publication, "The impact on Fife of closing the base would be extensive and long-term - it would affect jobs, schools, local services and community groups."
