We’ve got six more Sunday reads for you this week: from coverage of criticism of UEA sportspark over branding perceived as racist, to not one, but two, winter in Scotland specials. (Sensing a theme here.)

We hope you enjoy the pieces we’ve picked, and, as always, email or tweet any submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org or @SPAjournalism.
