A couple have moved into their new home in Lanark without carpets, furniture, fridge freezer, clothing or even their children’s toys because, they claim, South Lanarkshire Council have lost the lot.

“Our furniture has disappeared,” Fiona Bolton said. “It was supposed to be put into storage but now the council have said it has disappeared.”
