Police appeal following Broxburn disturbance

Police in West Lothian are appealing for witnesses following a large-scale disturbance on a residential street in Broxburn.

Around a dozen males and females understood to be aged in their mid teens to early 20’s were reportedly seen acting in an aggressive manner outside a property in McLeod Street at 4:30am on Saturday, July 23rd.

Two males, aged 21 and 22-years-old, required medical attention as a result of this incident but have since been discharged from hospital.

CID officers based in Livingston are now carrying out inquiries in an effort to trace everyone involved and are today seeking the assistance of the public.

Detective Sergeant Graham Garvie who is based in Livingston said: “We are currently following a positive line of inquiry however a visible police presence will remain in the local area as we continue to investigate this disturbance.

“As part of this inquiry officers will be conducting door-to-door and reviewing the local CCTV network.

“This incident caused a significant distress to nearby residents and we take a zero tolerance approach towards anyone involved in this sort of unacceptable behaviour.

“Needless to say that we are treating this matter extremely seriously and will do everything in our power to trace all of those involved.

“I would urge anyone who has information relevant to our ongoing inquiry to contact police on 101 or the charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.”
