25 YEARS AGO
A 50- year- old mother of five claims she was assaulted by two police officers. Margaret McGarrie vowed to sue the Chief Constable of Strathclyde for over £ 17,000.
But giving evidence in a Civil Proof at Ayr Sheriff Court, the two police officers denied acting improperly and injuring her.
Mrs McGarrie, of Dalmilling Drive, said on November 18, 1987, she her daughter Margo had been involved in an assault and robbery on a female Provident collector and told police.
Mrs McGarrie said she was hurt during the bid to handcuff Margo.
