Hun­dreds of school pupils had an ex­tra day’s hol­i­day when teach­ers staged a one-day strike to protest against the Govern­ment’s lat­est ed­u­ca­tion pro­pos­als.

Coun­cil­lors in­sisted that they wanted Mcdon­alds to open up a fast food restau­rant at Mother­well Cross.

A 27-year-old Mother­well man re­quired surgery af­ter be­ing bit­ten on his lip dur­ing an early morn­ing as­sault.

Mother­well Con­cert Band con­tin­ued their rise to glory in Hol­land when they were just pipped to third place in Europe.

The East Mother­well District Hous­ing As­so­ci­a­tion and SSHA joined forces for a £1 mil­lion­wishaw de­vel­op­ment.
