A man has appeared in court charged with murder following the death of Emma Caldwell almost 17 years ago. Emma was last seen in the early hours of April 5 2005, on London Road in Glasgow, and was reported missing by her family five days later.

A bank manager who stole £18,000 from the account of a pensioner is now facing jail. 39-year-old Kerry Hamilton worked as the senior personal banking manager at a TSB branch in Hamilton. She had access to all accounts held at the bank as part of her duties.

Travelling abroad may soon become a lot easier as ‘complicated’ passenger locator forms are expected to be scrapped by the beginning of April. Current rules require all tourists to fill out a Covid travel form before returning to the UK which needs to be submitted 3 days before arrival in the UK.
