Weekly Roundup - 2nd November

Published 02 November 2018

Hello, and welcome to the latest edition of Weekly Roundup, bringing you the best in Scottish policing news from the past seven days.

Welcome news was received this week when Police Scotland officers in the Highlands and Islands region accepted a donation of six defribillators from the family of Keiran McKandie, road traffic collision victim who sadly died in 2016. Road Policing Chief Inspector Stewart Mackie said, "We are extremely grateful to the McKandie family for their generous donation of this life-saving equipment which will now be carried in road policing vehicles operating in the Highlands and Islands. Over the last few months our road policing officers working out of Dingwall and Fort William have received training to prepare for the introduction of defibrillators."

Also this week, there was a £50k seizure of cannabis in Alness, and a man found guilty for the murder of Hannah Dorans.

Meanwhile, a man was charged following a disturbance at Falkirk Train Station, and a 27-year-old male was charged after a serious assault in Livingston.

And finally, on Halloween, we appealed to the public for information after a series of strange incidents in the Inverclyde area, beginning with the beaching of a cargo vessel, and ending with vampire hunters, grave desecrations and bloodbank robberies. Read the full shocking story below!

That's it for this week. Stay safe, have a great weekend, and we'll see you again next Friday.
