More than 40 homes are to be built in Govan after commercial property and investment company LCP sold land at one of its most prominent locations to a construction company. LCP, which owns and manages Govan Cross Shopping Centre, has sold a surplus of land to construction and manufacturing groups.

A popular Rangers pub in Glasgow, was vandalised on the night of the Queen’s funeral. Operators of the Louden Tavern found the graffiti on Tuesday morning, when checking in on the pub, which is just around the corner from Ibrox stadium. Two separate pieces of graffiti were sprayed on the front of the venue overnight.

There are now 27,995 children living in relative poverty in the city, which is 2,510 more than before the pandemic. Among efforts to reduce child poverty, Glasgow City council has put in financial inclusion advisers at secondary schools and set up a new advice service Glasgow Helps, which looks to help families access food and fuel top ups among other schemes.
