Council bosses have announced a halt to new repairs in their properties unless considered urgent, until at least November 16.

West Dunbartonshire Council announced that because of Scottish Government guidelines regarding social distancing for employees, and limited resources, only emergency repairs will be carried out on housing.

The council said there are an increased number of repairs currently due to a backlog from earlier this year when similar rules applied.
