At around 2220 hours on 12 September a resident in Kings Road was watching TV. She heard her name being called and then a sound which sounded like a balloon bursting.

A lady lost her handbag from a taxi she caught from her home in Leaver Road to Slimming World on 9 September. She did not realise it was missing until she was due to leave the Slimming World. She does not believe theft would have occurred at the club so assumes it happened in the taxi. She has contacted the taxi company who have advised her that no handbag was handed in. The taxi driver is described as an Asian male, 30 to 35 years old with long hair, clean shaven, wearing possibly a blue Oxford shirt with a collar.
