Ap­peal as man fights for life

Evening Times - - NEWS -

PO­LICE be­lieve a mys­tery cou­ple may hold the key as they con­tinue to probe an in­ci­dent which left a man fight­ing for his life.

Cops were called to Garscube Road at around 7.10am on Satur­day to re­ports of a man on the ground at a bus stop.

Emer­gency ser­vices at­tended and the man was taken to the Royal In­fir­mary. Med­i­cal staff de­scribe his con­di­tion as crit­i­cal.

Po­lice are look­ing to speak to a woman who got on a bus at the stop be­tween 5.30am and 5.45am, and say she could hold vi­tal in­for­ma­tion.

De­tec­tives are also li­ais­ing with bus com­pa­nies for in­for­ma­tion on what buses use that route, and are re­view­ing CCTV from in and around the area.

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion is asked to call of­fi­cers on 101.

A GLAS­GOW mall has been named Scot­land’s top shop­ping cen­tre for the sec­ond year in a row.

Intu Brae­head, on the out­skirts of the city, topped the Glob­al­Data list for out­lets north of the Bor­der af­ter the firm re­leased its Top 50 UK Shop­ping Cen­tres Re­port for 2019.

Of­fi­cials mea­sured the re­quire­ments and data from both ten­ants and shop­pers to give a com­pre­hen­sive re­view of the coun­try’s shop­ping malls.

The intu Brae­head cen­tre came 13th in the whole of the UK – one place higher than last year – and was ranked the best in Scot­land.

The shop­ping cen­tre was judged on its turnover, foot­fall, area, sales den­sity, oc­cu­pancy rate, spend per vis­i­tor and dwell times.

Glob­al­Data also mea­sured po­ten­tial for fu­ture spend­ing on re­tail, leisure and food, the pro­vi­sion of key fa­cil­i­ties and meet­ing shop­per ex­pec­ta­tions.

Peter Bea­gley, cen­tre di­rec­tor, said: “We said when we were awarded the top spot in Scot­land last year that we wouldn’t rest on our lau­rels. It’s pleas­ing to know we are con­tin­u­ally im­prov­ing the ex­pe­ri­ence of peo­ple who visit us and the ser­vice to our ten­ants.”

Other cen­tres in and around Glas­gow in the top 50 in­cluded East Kil­bride shop­ping cen­tre at 18, Sil­ver­burn Cen­tre at 23, and the Clyde Shop­ping Cen­tre at 49.

Buchanan Gal­leries and the St Enoch Cen­tre did not ap­pear.
