He made his way to the street, where he was helped by members of the public until an ambulance arrived.

He was taken to University Hospital Wishaw but died a short time later.

James Baillie, 24, and Derek Felvus, 23, both of Hamilton, have previously appeared at the town’s sheriff court accused of murdering Mr Williamson and attempting to defeat the ends of justice.

Felvus made no plea when he appeared in court in August and was remanded in custody.
