Ruther­glen Main Street was brought to a tem­po­rary halt af­ter a preg­nant wo­man had to be cut free from her crashed car.

A cairn com­mem­o­rat­ing the men of Cam­bus­lang who had died in two World Wars was un­veiled.

Cam­paign­ers op­posed to the M74 ex­ten­sion had to make an emer­gency ap­peal for fund­ing to pay for le­gal ac­tion.
