A CLYDEBANK MSP has said the £20 million cash injection set for the area will "create jobs" and "crackdown on anti-social behaviour."

Scottish Conservative Pam Gosal welcomed the “brilliant” news that the region is one of seven Scottish towns to benefit from an equal share of a £140m Levelling Up fund from the UK Government.

The announcement of the new cash injection was made just before the start of the UK Conservative Party conference.

Prime Minister Rishi Sunak stated the money was being invested in “overlooked” towns to regenerate high streets and tackle anti-social behaviour and fellow Tory Ms Gosal praised her party leader for the move.

The West of Scotland MSP said: “It is brilliant to see the UK Government investing directly in Clydebank and several other Scottish towns.

“This funding will give local people more power to decide what’s best for our communities. 

“It could help to create jobs, rejuvenate our local economy, and crack down on anti-social behaviour."
