Show Stopping Incidents

FEARS have been voiced over the future of Stranraer's Shows after a series of incidents between staff and local youths.

The Shows, or traditional October Amusements Fair, have been coming to the town's Breastwork area for well over a century. This year's run comes to an end on Saturday and the fear is that they may not come back after trouble with locals has escalated over the last couple of years.

Last week, one fair worker was the victim of a bottle attack and there have been a number of other incidents. This has led to one senior police officer telling local councillors that if trouble continues the fair "might not come back".

Staff at the Shows this week played down the incidents.
