Games for Glasgow
OUR reporter described the work taking place to prepare for the Commonwealth Games.
It read: “A year ago, Glasgow held its breath as a serious looking official took the stage of a luxury hotel in Sri Lanka.
“Yards away, First Minister Alex Salmond and city council leader Steven Purcell stood side- by- side desperately hoping years of hard work had paid off.
“Moments later they were punching the air as it was announced Glasgow was to host the 2014 Commonwealth Games .
“Thousands of miles away the city erupted in celebration at the news it was to be the home of the £373million sporting extravaganza.
Happy and relieved, this crowd of revellers is celebrating VJ Day in Glasgow in 1945
