Underneath he had a black ‘Killers’ T shirt with white writing, dark jeans and black doc martin boots. He may also have been wearing a dark coloured woollen hat.

Police advise that there has been a possible sighting of Graham in Paisley. If anyone has seen Graham in the last 17 days or know of his whereabouts, please get in touch with Police Scotland at Glasgow West End Office by phone via the 101 number, quoting incident number 1787 of 21 November 2017.

I have written to the Chief Executive of Lloyds Banking Group following the announcement that the Scotstoun Bank of Scotland branch is to close in March.

The loss of this branch would have a detrimental impact on local residents in Scotstoun, Scotstounhill and Whiteinch, many of whom are elderly and who will now have no direct access to the nearest branch in Anniesland – two miles away.

Whilst I understand that the shift towards online and mobile banking has affected the number of in-store transactions in recent years, there still has to be access to over-the-counter services within existing communities, particularly one so heavily populated with older residents.

Facing Christmas with little or no money and struggling to make ends meet is, sadly, the reality for many.

To help support those struggling the most this Christmas, and remind them that they are not alone or forgotten, I'm delighted to announce the Glasgow North West Toy Drive, in partnership with the Trussell Trust.

We are looking for donations of new toys, which can be dropped off before December 13th at my constituency office, 500 Dumbarton Road, G11 6SL or at any Trussell Trust collection point.

Food donations are, of course, also welcome. Please donate and spread the word if you can!

A number of constituents have contacted me about Lauri Love, who is facing extradition to the United States of America for alleged hacks of governmental agencies.

Following a letter to then President Obama asking him to withdraw the extradition request for Lauri, stressing the implications to his health and indeed his life, I was one of many MPs who signed a further letter to the Prime Minister and Attorney General, asking them to make representations to their American counterparts about Lauri receiving a trial at home.

While are disappointed by the response from the Attorney General, the campaign on behalf of Lauri continues.
