Milngavie mum claims her family was put in danger

A Milngavie woman has told how vandals set fire to a ‘Yes’ Referendum sign on her house last Friday night just after midnight.

She had used a washing line to hang it underneath a bedroom window and she believes the culprits would have used a ladder to reach it.

The woman, who asked not to be named for fear of reprisal, said: “There are smoke marks on the window and melted plastic remnants. They obviously didn’t give a jot about endangering our lives. I’m very upset .

“It’s sheer providence that something more serious didn’t happen.”
