Rutherglen Reformer - - Reformer view -

A con­victed killer who ab­sconded from prison was caught by po­lice in a Ruther­glen pub.

John Wil­son (50), who had served al­most 25 years of his life sentence for shoot­ing Stephen Barnes dead at a bus stop, was found in the Wee Mill on Baronald Street.

He had been on an un­escorted work place­ment in Dal­marnock, Glas­gow, as part of his prepa­ra­tion for free­dom. When he failed to re­turn to Greenock prison, staff raised the alarm.

Else­where par­ents held a protest against pro­posed changes to free school bus pro­vi­sion.
