It has just gone past 5pm on Halloween night in Barrhead.

Darkness has fallen and the traffic is building on Main Street as people make their way home from work.

But that is proving problematic for residents of the town’s Auchenback estate, which is not being served by local bus operator McGill’s for the fifth night in a row.

The company instructed drivers plying two routes – the 3 and the 51/51A – not to enter the estate between 5pm and 5am each day due to a wave of anti-social behaviour.

Greenock-based bus firm McGill’s say three of its buses have been put out of service after being attacked by youngsters throwing projectiles in the Auchenback estate.
