Community councillors have been forced to cancel a Christmas lights switch-on after forecasters issued storm warnings.

As torrential rain and gale force winds approached East Dunbartonshire, Bishopbriggs Community Council made the decision to scrap the Auchinairn event which was due to take place this evening (Friday).

Organisers said: “We’re really disappointed but the safety of families attending the event had to come first.

“The lights will still shine through the Christmas period so all is not lost. We’d like to wish everyone in Auchinairn a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.”
