Following a history degree at Leeds University, I completed the journalism course at Glasgow Caledonian University in May 2011. I did shifts as part of the Evening Times training scheme, before being taken on full time in January 2012. I now cover the east end of Glasgow.
The news that Margaret Thatcher had died at the Ritz Hotel in London following a stroke was met with both grief from supporters and 'celebrations' from those staunchly opposed to her politics.
As tributes to Baroness Thatcher poured in from around the world, a group of around 300 people gathered in Glasgow city centre for what was described as a 'party' to mark her passing.
The 87-year-old, who had suffered bouts of illness for many years, was said to have died peacefully.
Caledonia Road in the Gorbals – one of the main routes into Glasgow – is down to one lane each way with work continuing until the end of May in preparations for a proposed First Bus depot.
This is expected to cause yet more delays for commuters, who last year endured the same stretch of road being dug up four times within a period of months.
