A Ruther­glen man has been banned from Cam­bus­lang – and from us­ing pub­lic trans­port – af­ter be­ing ac­cused of ha­rass­ing women.

Fern­hill res­i­dent Liv­i­nus Ebere Of­for ap­peared at Hamil­ton Sher­iff Court last week and de­nied re­peat­edly touch­ing a wo­man’s back and hair in an at­tempt to gain her at­ten­tion on a bus on Novem­ber 8.

It is al­leged the 31-year-old also re­fused to leave the wo­man alone and stared at her.

On the same date in his home street of Fern­hill Road, Of­for al­legedly di­rected sex­ual re­marks to­wards an­other wo­man be­fore fol­low­ing a third fe­male and try­ing to en­gage her in con­ver­sa­tion. It is claimed he at­tempted to gain per­sonal in­for­ma­tion from her and made in­ap­pro­pri­ate re­marks.

The fourth charge Of­for de­nies is said to have taken place the day be­fore, Novem­ber 7, on Fern­hill Road and Auchen­larie Drive.

A Na­tional Lot­tery player who bought a £1 mil­lion win­ning ticket in South La­nark­shire will never see their for­tune.

Camelot an­nounced yes­ter­day that the £1,000,000 Mil­lion­aire Raf­fle prize from the Lotto draw on May 30 has re­mained un­claimed for more than 180 days.

The ticket-holder bought their ticket in South La­nark­shire and the dead­line for them to claim their prize was mid­night on Novem­ber 26.

As the dead­line has now passed the money and the in­ter­est it earned will go to help Na­tional Lot­tery-funded pro­jects across the UK.

Andy Carter from The Na­tional Lot­tery said: “Un­for­tu­nately I can con­firm that the ticket-holder did not come for­ward within the dead­line to claim their prize and has now sadly missed out on this sub­stan­tial amount of money.

“To avoid this un­for­tu­nate sit­u­a­tion hap­pen­ing again I would urge all Na­tional Lot­tery play­ers to check their tick­ets on a reg­u­lar ba­sis.

“We tried very hard to find the ticket-holder and it’s a real shame that they have missed out but there is still one win­ner: the na­tion.“
