Rutherglen Reformer - - Memory Lane -

New test re­sults on toxic waste were set to be used to dis­credit a BBC Front­line Scot­land pro­gramme on chromium waste, as an ar­gu­ment raged over the dan­ger lev­els in the area.

Fern­hill young­sters hit back over al­le­ga­tions they were caus­ing trou­ble in the area, and blamed the lo­cal au­thor­ity for not pro­vid­ing any fa­cil­i­ties for them.

A young Castlemilk girl was trag­i­cally killed in a road ac­ci­dent, while six peo­ple were in­jured in other road ac­ci­dents in Ruther­glen.

It was claimed an in­creas­ing num­ber of lo­cals were dic­ing with death by tak­ing short­cuts across rail­way lines.

A Whit­law­burn man claimed new speed bumps had wrecked the steer­ing rack on his car.
