TOWN AND BUSES BAN
Court bail warning for alleged pest
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.
It is claimed he repeatedly requested personal information from another woman before standing in
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.“
