FEARS were growing this morning for a vulnerable 15-year-old boy who went missing from his home in Dundee.

Brendan Carroll has not been seen since Friday and Tayside Police are appealing for information about his whereabouts.

The lad, from the city’s Clovis Duveau Drive, is described as six-foot tall, with long brown hair and blue eyes.

Officers said that the slimly built boy was wearing a grey DKNY hooded top, a pin Lacoste T-shirt, blue jeans and white Adidas trainers when he disappeared.

A MAN was raced to hospital after being saved from a burning house in Midlothian.

Firefighters tackled a blaze in Mayfield’s Camp Road on Saturday morning before the 20-year-old man was taken to Edinburgh Royal Infirmary.

A Lothian and Borders Fire and Rescue worker said crews used a high pressure hose and two sets of breathing apparatus to extinguish the fire after being called at 7.22am.
