FIREFIGHTERS were given a police escort to a bonfire in Lennoxtown because a large group of youths were in the area.

The incident took place at Greenhead Road on Sunday morning at around 1.20am.

Meanwhile, an elderly resident was taken to hospital with slight smoke inhalation after a fire at a house in Milton of Campsie on Saturday.

The blaze, in Birdston Road, was extinguished before crews arrived.
