A man has been charged with attempted murder after a street fight in Lanark left a 37-year-old dead and 60-year-old seriously injured.

Billy Gladstone died at Wishaw General Hospital following the incident on Sunday night.

Police charged the 36-year-old in relation to the attack on the second victim – believed to be his Billy’s dad William, who remains in a serious, but stable condition.

The arrest follows a major investigation into the incident at Sunnybrae Cottage, Ayr Road at 7pm.

Detectives believe a group of men were at property, but fled before officers arrived.

The news comes a day after it emerged that dad-of-two Billy Gladstone Jnr had been due to appear in court charged with possessing Class B drugs.

The inquiry continues and the arrested man is expected to appear at Lanark Sheriff Court today.

Anyone with information should call police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
