The SRPS has installed alarms on buildings, externally monitored CCTV and employed the services of security patrols across the whole site in a bid to make it as safe and secure as possible.

An SRPS spokesperson said: “A fence has been erected around the site perimeter. The society is aware Bo’ness residents regularly use the car parks as a short cut to walk from the east end of the town towards the shops. There is no intention to inconvenience people any more than necessary and a gate has been provided at the east of the site to allow this to continue.

“It should be noted this is not, and never has been a right of way and neither is it a public car park. The pedestrian and vehicular gates at both east and west ends of the site will be locked outwith working hours.”
