Last night, a lorry allegedly rammed into a house in Lanarkshire, which is now being demolished.
The incident took place in the town’s Lancaster Crescent around 11.25pm.
Earlier, we explained how police officers were investigating the alleged incident.
No one was injured in the alleged vandalism, but the house was severely damaged and had to be demolished.
Police have since confirmed that a 33-year-old man has been arrested following last night’s blast, as officers continue to investigate.
Pictures from the house showed the extent of the damage later – spread on the driveway with bricks and debris.
Nearby residents were temporarily evacuated from their homes to a hotel as police cordoned off the house and launched an investigation.
A car was later found near Liddell Supermarket, not far from the scene.
Pictures taken from Liddell Car Park show firefighters removing bricks from a wrecked Eddie Stubart vehicle.
The area was closed to the public as several crew members worked to remove any debris from the HGV.
