Eyewitness Iain McLean told Glasgow Live: "Multiple firetrucks and police cars are on scene at the Alexandra pub on duke street. The top flat above the pubs window had broken leaving glass hanging out of the frame.

"When my bus arrived firemen on the ground were preparing to climb the ladder on the second vehicle to go up from the outside while the firemen inside held the window. The police on the ground were also directing traffic and helping people cross the road and telling them where to avoid."

The Scottish Fire and Rescue confirmed that units were called to the scene to deal with 'falling glass' from a building.
