Dan­ger­ous chem­i­cal drums were be­ing dumped less than half a mile from a Castlemilk pri­mary school and the district coun­cil was pow­er­less to stop it hap­pen­ing un­til they de­ter­imed who was ac­tu­ally be­hind it.

The con­tro­ver­sial Dech­mont army gun range was re­opened, just over a week be­fore an im­por­tant visit from Glas­gow’s Lord Provost.

A bit­ter wran­gle over the site of a new £1.6 mil­lion sports cen­tre in Castlemilk was set to be re­solved.

A rugby club that was try­ing to stem a grow­ing cash cri­sis was thrown a pos­si­ble rates life­line by Strath­clyde Re­gional Coun­cil.
