A friend of slain Kevin Holmes said the jus­tice sys­tem had failed his dev­as­tated fam­ily af­ter his killer ad­mit­ted to a re­duced charge of cul­pa­ble homi­cide.

Ge­orge McDon­ald said he had killed Kevin – known as Keek – by kick­ing, punch­ing and stamp­ing on his head in a lane near Main Street on March 22, 2016.

Fam­ily friend Jim Scott Snr said:“There is no way this is jus­tice. He was only walk­ing through the lane to take a short-cut to the Main Street when he was as­saulted.”

Law and District ath­letes Hay­ley Berry and Vi­vian Du­ruh were be­ing tipped for the top by their coach.

Don McLeod said the Wishaw young­sters were on course to rep­re­sent Scot­land at the Com­mon­wealth Games af­ter tak­ing the shot­put scene by storm.
