The Herald - - NEWS -

A SUS­PECTED thief is in a crit­i­cal con­di­tion af­ter an ex­plo­sion at a cash ma­chine.

Po­lice were called to the in­ci­dent on Thurs­day night out­side a row of shops on Glas­gow Road in the Yoker area of the city.

A 51-year-old man was found at the scene and taken to the Queen El­iz­a­beth Univer­sity Hospi­tal where his con­di­tion is de­scribed as crit­i­cal.

An­other man was spot­ted flee­ing the area.

Po­lice be­lieve the men may have been at­tempt­ing to steal the ATM at the time.

De­tec­tive In­spec­tor Fiona Macarthur said: “In­quiries are at a very early stage to es­tab­lish the full cir­cum­stances.”
