Following Government guidelines, we have temporarily closed all of our offices and our staff are now all working from home using secure technologies to ensure they are able to continue to progress with existing and new cases as normal.

We know these are uncertain and unsettling times for many of our clients, and the wider population, and things might look a little different for the foreseeable future. But our focus remains on our dedication, knowledge and strength that we provide to all our clients. We will continue to provide updates over the coming days and weeks in accordance with official guidelines and to keep everyone informed of the situation.

An 89-year-old woman was injured in a road traffic accident in Airdrie at 1.45pm on Monday. She was hit by a single-decker bus in Stirling Street near to Broomknoll Street and was taken to Monklands District General Hospital, where she was treated for head injuries. However she died later as a result of her serious injuries. One onlooker said the sound of the impact was ‘like two cars crashing together’. The driver of the bus was uninjured but very shaken. Police cordoned off the scene and took statements from witnesses.

She was later named by police as Martha Cowie, who lived in the town’s Rannoch Road. The 89-year-old was described as a ‘lovely woman’ by her neighbours, where she had lived for 50 years.

A spokeswoman for Strathclyde Police said: "The male driver of the bus was uninjured. A report on the circumstances will be prepared for the procurator fiscal.

"Officers from Motherwell road policing have launched an investigation into the cause of the accident, and are appealing to members of the public who witnessed the accident to contact them."

A report into the circumstances of her death is being prepared for the Procurator Fiscal.
