Sad news as Ayr barber dies after battle with cancer

The popular barber was diagnosed with liver cancer last year and in October had to shut shop in Ayr's Main Street, due to her illness.

She began to set up her own business after working in Trims as a teenager, which was a barbers based in Ayr Town in 1986.
