Fire crews have been tackling a blaze at a church in Glasgow.

Residents in a neighbouring four-storey tenement had to be evacuated after the fire broke out at the building on Crossloan Road, Govan, at about 22:30 on Sunday. At one point, 35 firefighters were tackling the "well-developed fire" where flames shot through the roof of the single-storey building. At 08:00 on Monday 25 firefighters were still at the scene. Some residents were given emergency accommodation. Others were advised to keep their windows and doors closed due to the smoke.

More than 130 jobs axed as Arches shuts its doors
MORE than 130 jobs have been axed in Glasgow after "cultural institution" the Arches closed its doors.
http://www.eveningtimes.co.uk/sites/default/files/imagecache/400xY/1427783441-795_0.jpg


The arts venue announced yesterday it was being forced into administration after losing its nightclub licence. A total of 133 people are employed by the city centre venue. It also indirectly employs scores of freelance workers in events, from designers to production managers, technicians to door stewards, artists and musicians.

The venue's board said there was "no other choice" after the licensing board decision hit revenue by more than 50%, making the business "untenable". The board imposed a midnight closing time last month after police complaints about drug and alcohol incidents. An appeal to the licensing board to reverse their decision which was lodged by the venue has been withdrawn. However, campaigners have vowed to fight on for the Arches - and say a demonstration will be planned.
