Appeal as man fights for life
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.
