Constituents will likely be aware of the tragic news of the death of 16 year Amber Gibson in Hamilton.

There is an ongoing murder enquiry by the Police and as part of that there will be a substantial Police presence in Cadzow Glen.

Alongside this the Police have increased the number of high-visibility patrols throughout the area. If you have any information or believe that you may have seen Amber at any point of her movements between Friday and Sunday please contact the Police and let them know.

You can do this in person at any station or to any officer, over the phone via 101 or anonymously via Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111. I will be making contact with various organisations over the coming days to discuss safety in the town centre and at both train stations. Violence against women is a blight on our society and we must do everything we can to ensure this does not happen again.
