Daughter of millionaire Scottish rail tycoon is targeted with graffiti slurs at gym days after thugs launched firebomb attack on car outside her home
The daughter of a millionaire Scottish rail tycoon has become the victim of a series of graffiti slurs in Hamilton just days after a fire bombing set her home alight.
Graphic slurs aimed at Jennifer McLeish were discovered at David Lloyd gym in Lanarkshire at approximately 6.30am this morning.
The 36-year-old was named in several of the phrases painted on the walls, as was her boyfriend Brian Macalear, the Scottish Sun reports.
It comes just 12 days after a car was driven to Ms McLeish’s front gate and set alight before the thugs fled the scene, leaving her terrified.

Phrases sprayed on the building reportedly included vulgar sexual slurs, as well as ‘Brian Macalear is a s****bag’ and ‘Jen pays Brian’s bills.’
Other graffiti has also been spotted in nearby Bothwell and Uddingston.
The incident is thought to be part of an ongoing gang feud that is reportedly unrelated to Ms McLeish herself or her family.
Sources told The Sun the dispute originated between Mr Macalear and the gang, who believe he owes them money.
A spokesperson for Police Scotland said: ‘Enquiries are ongoing following a report of a vandalism at a premises in Motel Hamilton and the matter was reported to police at around 6.30am in the morning on Thursday 19th January.’
Ms Mcleish is the daughter of wealthy railway maintenance firm QTS founder, Alan McLeish.
Just 12 days ago, Ms McLeish, was left terrified when the gang drove a Volvo to the gate outside her Glasgow home, set it alight and then fled the scene.
Firefighters rushed to the address to put out the blaze, while police gathered evidence and took photos of the crime scene. The motor had two different number plates and officers are attempting to trace its owner.
Police are aware of the graffiti and are making enquiries into the incident

Ms McLeish’s Range Rover was also blown up by a petrol bomb in 2020, which set fire to the roof of the £500,000 home
This is not the first time the 36-year-old has been the victim of a violent attack – Ms McLeish’s Range Rover was also blown up by a petrol bomb in 2020, which also set fire to the roof of the £500,000 home.
Her beauty salon in Glasgow’s Dennistoun was also ram-raided just weeks later.
At the time a witness told The Sun: ‘I was watching Dad’s Army on TV when these cars shot up the street.
‘I think there were two at least. A load of guys got out and there was a lot of shouting, they had Glaswegian accents. The next thing one of the cars they’d driven was on fire right next to the house.’
A Police Scotland spokesperson told MailOnline after last week’s incident: ‘We were called around 7.45pm on Saturday, 7 January, to a report of a fire at a property in the Bellshill Road area of Bothwell.
‘The fire was put out by the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service and no one was injured.
‘Enquiries are ongoing to establish the full circumstances.’
