A number of people have been injured after a “police incident” in the Stepps area of Glasgow. 

 There are unconfirmed reports of up to five people being stabbed.

A large fire and clouds of smoke were visible in images of the scene, while another picture shows what appears to be two burnt-out vans. Large numbers of police cars are also shown and cordons have been put in place. 

An onlooker told the Daily Record: "There was a massive bang. Two vans went up in flames. I've never seen anything like it. I don't know what's been going on but it's frightening."

A police spokesman said the disorder was “more likely to be rival gangs fighting” than anything terrorism related.

He added: "I can confirm that there have been people injured, but I don’t know what the extent of those injuries are."
