SAUCHIEHALL Street was closed off to traffic during rush hour due to falling debris from a top floor tenement flat.

Glasgow City Council said the road has been shut to eastbound traffic at its junction with St George's Road and Newton Road.

A large area at the foot of Sauchiehall Street was cordoned off while building control staff worked to make the area safe.
