Four taxi drivers have been deliberately driven at after a row outside a nightclub.

The incident happened at around 2.30am on Monday outside The Sanctuary on Dumbarton Road, Partick, Glasgow.

An argument had earlier broken out between a number of private car hire drivers, when one of them left in his Citroen Picasso towards the city centre.

Police Scotland said it appears he then returned and drove at speed towards the men, one of whom was standing in the road.

All four managed to evade the car, but were left shaken by the incident.

Detective Sergeant Bernadette Walls said: "Although we have spoken to a number of people who were at the club at the time, we are still keen to hear from anyone who may have been driving by - especially if they have dashcams on their car - to see if they have captured the car, which had a South Lanarkshire Council licence plate, in the area at the time of the incident.

"Thankfully no one was hurt but it could have had terrible consequences if the car had hit the men, or indeed any of the clubbers or door staff who were about at the time."
