Rutherglen Reformer - - Front Page -

A man sus­tained a “se­ri­ous head in­jury” dur­ing a mass brawl in Cam­bus­lang town cen­tre on Fri­day night.

The 47-year-old was caught up in the large-scale dis­tur­bance on the Main Street just af­ter 11pm.

An al­ter­ca­tion erupted in Wether­spoon’s pub, The John Fair­weather, which then con­tin­ued out­side.

The vic­tim was taken to Hairmyres Hospi­tal but was then trans­ferred to the Queen El­iz­a­beth Univer­sity Hospi­tal in Glas­gow, where his con­di­tion was de­scribed as se­ri­ous but sta­ble.

A 25-year-old man was also in­jured dur­ing the dis­tur­bance, how­ever, he was re­leased from hospi­tal fol­low­ing treat­ment.

De­tec­tive Con­sta­ble Paul Mooney, Cam­bus­lang CID, said: “There ap­pears to have been an al­ter­ca­tion within the Wether­spoon’s bar, which sub­se­quently spilled on to the street and where pa­trons from the pub and oth­ers out­side be­came in­volved.

“We know from our en­quiries that there were a num­ber of peo­ple film­ing the in­ci­dent out­side the pub and that there were a num­ber of cars in the road, so we are keen to get footage from ei­ther the phones or dash­cam which may as­sist us with our en­quiries.”

Any­one with footage or in­for­ma­tion can con­tact Cam­bus­lang CID via 101.
