A schoolboy was arrested during an Irish Republican march for 'carrying an offensive weapon', while another was nicked for an alleged breach of the peace amid sectarian chaos on the streets of Glasgow yesterday.

Hundreds of riot cops were forced to keep those marching separate from Loyalist protesters as the event threatened to turn ugly.

A lad, 15, was nicked for allegedly having a weapon on hand.

He has since been reported to the Children’s Reporter Administration.

But earlier this afternoon it was confirmed by police that another boy, 14, was arrested for an alleged breach of the peace offence.

The arrests bring the total to 11 for the day yesterday from the two parades on Clyde Street and Blythswood Square.

We told yesterday how a 33-year-old man was nicked for allegedly carrying a weapon as tensions boiled over.

Police on foot and horseback were drafted in to keep the two parties apart.

One officer was rushed to hospital after being hit with a firework.
