FEARS over the condition of a long-derelict block of flats in Port Bannatyne have worsened this week after a pane of glass fell from a top floor window and smashed on to the street below – narrowly missing passers-by and parked cars.

Neighbours contacted Argyll and Bute Council after the incident at Buckingham Terrace, and the building was fenced off before local contractor Ian McMillan began work on boarding up all the windows in the derelict blocks at numbers 12 and 14 Castle Street.
