A war veteran was ap­peal­ing for help in track­ing down the fam­ily of a Cam­bus­lang artist who had painted his pic­ture dur­ing the Sec­ond World War.

The Re­former told how a coura­geous spe­cial needs teacher from King’s Park was to make an emo­tional jour­ney to Mada­gas­car to over­see the build­ing of a clinic in mem­ory of her late fi­ancé.

Ruther­glen shop­pers were left stunned when po­lice of­fi­cers in riot gear ap­peared on Main Street - it soon emerged they were look­ing for a vul­ner­a­ble miss­ing per­son.

Glen­cairn beat Sun­ny­bank on pnal­ties after a 2-2 draw in a cup tie.
