20 Held Over George Square Trouble

Twenty people have now been arrested after trouble flared in Scotland's biggest city in the wake of the referendum result.

There were ugly scenes after hundreds of people gathered in Glasgow's George Square last Friday, with police - some mounted on horses - lining up to divide rival supporters of the union and independence.

A number of people draped in union flags later left the area and began spreading on to the nearby streets.

They then gathered in George Square again, singing Rule Britannia and a flare was let off.

The arrests are for various offences including disorder, breach of the peace and vandalism, Police Scotland said.

Six people were initially arrested in connection with the incident but police warned at the time that retrospective inquiries would be carried out which could lead to further arrests.
