Police are following new leads in their investigation into the murder of a man gunned down as children played nearby.

Gary More, 32, was shot several times in Gartness Drive, Airdrie, North Lanarkshire, last Thursday and died at the scene.

Officers revisited the area on Thursday night and spoke to around 40 people, and were given new information on the getaway car.

Earlier on Thursday, Mr More's sister Lynsey made an emotional appeal for information as police said the initial public response had been "very poor", with reports that they had not received a single call.

A police spokeswoman said: "We spoke to around 40 people at the stop and interview operation.

"One piece of information in particular which is being looked into is the movements of the car and the occupants of the vehicle."

After the shooting at 8.10pm, the suspect is believed to have sped away in a white Skoda Fabia with a number of people inside.

A car of the same model and colour was later found burnt-out near Craigmaddie Road in Balmore, Milngavie, East Dunbartonshire, and is being examined by forensic teams. Police Scotland said inquiries have established the car was stolen on August 2 from the Pollokshields area of Glasgow.

Its original registration was SH13 UMG, but it may have had other plates fitted.

In her appeal for information, Lynsey More revealed Mr More had "died in her arms."

She added: "Please don't let another family suffer the way we have - if you know anything, tell the police."

She said her family have been devastated by the murder of the father-of-two, who she said had been dealing with addiction issues.
