A pile of old tyres behind a former supermarket in Clydebank was set on fire on Thursday night.

A heap of fly-tipped scrap tyres behind the old Lidl Store on Livingstone Street was set on fire at around 7.30pm on June 10.

It's understood the tyres had been dumped by flytippers last month only a few days after volunteers from the Linnvale Community Group's Greenspace Team cleared the area of rubbish.

Clydebank Post:

Police first spotted the fire and alerted Scottish Fire and Rescue Service (SFRS) to attend the incident.

Clydebank Post:

“There were no reported casualties and crews left after ensuring the area was made safe.”
