Crime off the rails
VIOLENT attacks in Glasgow’s busiest rail station were on the increase with almost a third of serious crimes going unsolved.
The number of stabbings and serious assaults in Glasgow Central Station rose while clear-up rates plunged by a quarter.
According to figures obtained by the Evening Times, 31% of violent crime in Central Station went unpunished.
But British Transport Police defended the figures, saying their clear-up rates were still beating national targets.
Of 80 violent offences in the station between April 2007 and March 2008, only 55 were dealt with by the authorities.
