Major incidents

Woodside has seen few major incidents throughout the years, but three of those are worth taking time to remember.

Two are marked by memorials  – the major fire of 1972, and the devastating explosion at Stockline Plastics in 2004.

The third incident – a shootout in Holyrood Crescent – was shocking at the time, but is little remembered except perhaps in Glasgow’s Police Museum.
