Rutherglen Reformer - - Memory Lane -

Fu­ri­ous Cam­bus­lang res­i­dents claimed their quiet com­mu­nity was be­ing ripped apart by teen vi­o­lence and van­dal­ism, with gangs of youths gath­er­ing in a chil­dren’s play­park ev­ery night to threaten lo­cals.

The own­ers of a book­mak­ers in Burn­side were given a slap on the wrists by South La­nark­shire Coun­cil for breaching sev­eral as­pects of plan­ning con­trol.

Cam­bus­lang lo­cals were op­pos­ing a plan to erect a new mo­bile phone mast, which would be hid­den in­side a bowl­ing club’s flag­pole.

A Falkirk based de­vel­oper spent over £3.5mil­lion buy­ing va­cant land in a bid to build new homes in Ruther­glen and Cam­bus­lang.

Cam­bus­lang boxer Scott Har­ri­son re­tained his WBO feath­er­weight ti­tle.
