A HAULAGE firm whose lorry was used to plough into a family home says it is "actively supporting the police probe". 

The Stobart Group vehicle crashed into the front of the Lancaster Crescent property twice in quick succession shortly before midnight on Monday.

Children were among those forced to flee the East Kilbride house with neighbours telling of their "horror" the next day. Substantially damaged during the incident, the property was beginning to be demolished last night. 

Glasgow Times:

A man has since been arrested in connection with events and the Stobart lorry was found abandoned with brickwork debris on its roof in a nearby carpark. 

And today the Stobart Group - separate from Eddie Stobart - has said it is aware of the incident. 

Glasgow Times:

A spokesperson said: “Stobart Energy is aware of an incident involving an agency driver and one of its vehicles. The company is actively supporting the police investigation.”

Police arrested a 33-year-old man in connection with the incident last night.
