Rescued by Stranraer Football Club

STRANRAER Football Club players were involved in rescuing people involved in a two-car pile-up on the A77 road near Turnberry while on their way to Stair Park on Saturday.

And, after helping to get adults and children out of one car, the group had a whipround to buy more Easter eggs to replace those scattered on the road by the crash.

It was only after the game that manager Billy McLaren revealed details.

"One car was overturned and squashed down and there were a couple and two wee children in that car.

"It is fair to say we all contributed to getting them out of the car and in the other car we did the same and the family sat in the bus. That is how lucky they were".

He added:

"The car was completely squashed. We had to turn off the engine and get the people out with kids screaming. That really was quite a traumatic day for us".
