Fire in a Govan Scrapyard. . . .

Govan car scrapyard fire leaves thousands without power

A fire at a scrapyard in Glasgow sent a huge plume of smoke above the city and left about 3,000 homes without power.

The blaze at Japanese Autoparts, in Helen Street, near Ibrox stadium, broke out at about 16:30 GMT on Sunday.

Scottish Power said one of its buildings was involved in the fire, which was still burning on Monday morning, and power was 
shut off in the area as fire crews assessed the damage. Power was restored to customers at 21:50, the firm said.
At its peak, about 50 firefighters tackled the blaze and there are still 20 firefighters at the scene.

Eight arrests after Old Firm match at Ibrox

A 23-year-old man has been arrested after a fan ran on to the pitch to confront Celtic captain Scott Brown during the Old Firm match at Ibrox.
He was one of eight people detained by police in connection with alleged offences in and around the stadium.
The man has been charged under the Offensive Behaviour at Football and Threatening Communications Act.
Police said they were also aware of an alleged racially motivated incident and inquiries were ongoing.
It is understood someone allegedly made a monkey gesture at Celtic player Scott Sinclair.

'Unacceptable behaviour'

The 23-year-old man was expected to appear at Glasgow Sheriff Court on Tuesday.
Celtic won the game against Rangers 5-1.
A 30-year-old man was also arrested and detained in connection with offences under the Offensive Behaviour at Football and Threatening 
Communications Act. A 36-year-old man and a 16-year-old were detained for allegedly trying to enter the ground while drunk.
Another 16-year-old was charged in connection with the possession of alcohol within the stadium.
Two men, aged 34 and 53, and a 15-year-old were charged in connection with alleged breaches of the peace.
A Rangers spokesman said: "Rangers does not condone any form of unacceptable behaviour and the matter is now in the hands of Police Scotland."
Asked about the incident of a man allegedly running on to the pitch, Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers said: 
"I haven't seen it again, there was so much more happening in the game. "It's not nice when something like that happens, but I only 
caught the tail end of it, really."


Haste ye back.
