ALLOA is set to be the home of Scotland’s first 5G hub in a move which will hopefully bring billions of pounds into the country’s economy.

Council leader Ellen Forson described her delight at Clackmannanshire being chosen as the first site in this week’s Advertiser.

Also in this week’s paper –

• A Wee County woman has been convicted of racist abuse and trashing a takeaway shop in Falkirk.

• A row is continuing between developers and residents in Menstrie over a play park housing application.

• Objections have been raised against a proposed new takeaway in Tillicoultry.

• A life-saving defibrillator has been installed in a Hillfoots town.

All this, plus much more, in this week’s Advertiser, out tomorrow [Wednesday, September 23].
