CLYDEBANK MSP Gil Paterson has welcomed a new dedicated web page to report vortices caused by airplanes over Whitecrook.

The politician said Glasgow Airport was providing the space on their website so the public could get information and ensure repairs can be carried out.

A recent vortex over the area saw tiles ripped from the roof of homes after an Emirates flight, something campaigners have persistently warned about.

And it follows plans to trial noise insulation and other measures against the increase in air traffic and campaigner concerns for disruption to residents’ sleep and health.

Mr Paterson told the Post: “While vortex incidents are rare it is important that, when they do occur, residents know where to go to find out what to do.

“Vortex can happen at any time of the day or night – they don’t stick to office hours – so the dedicated priority email account is essential to make sure that any repairs necessary are carried out quickly.

“This is a new initiative by Glasgow Airport and I’m very pleased that they have listened both to me and to local residents and have been proactive in putting folks’ minds at ease.”
