Mys­tery over cops in gar­den

Wishaw Press - - FRONT PAGE -

A po­lice foren­sic team was spot­ted at work in a Wishaw gar­den last week.

But mys­tery sur­rounds the rea­son why they were there.

A wor­ried mem­ber of the pub­lic con­tacted the Wishaw Press when the spe­cial­ists de­scended on Claren­don Road, Nether­ton, last Tues­day.

Cops, wear­ing white suits, re­mained at the scene for sev­eral hours and other of­fi­cers re­turned the fol­low­ing day.

But when the Wishaw Press asked po­lice what was go­ing on, a spokesper­son said that no in­ci­dents had been recorded in the street on the days in ques­tion.

They sug­gested the in­ves­ti­ga­tions may have been linked to an in­ves­ti­ga­tion from out­with the re­gion but couldn’t com­ment fur­ther.

One res­i­dent, who asked not to be named, said:“The po­lice were here on Mon­day, Tues­day and now to­day (last Wed­nes­day).

“We had the men in white suits out yes­ter­day (last Tues­day) look­ing in the gar­den.”

A fel­low neigh­bour added: “There was a bit of bother there last year. A win­dow was smashed and po­lice were called.

“We have heard a cou­ple of ru­mours as to why they are there but that’s all we know at the mo­ment.

“The po­lice haven’t told us any­thing.”
