Police have confirmed there were no arrests or trouble at four loyalist marches in Glasgow on Saturday.

Hundreds paraded through the streets despite council and police fears there could be major disruption.

It comes after violent scenes at a number of recent events in the city which left Govan in a state of riot and a police officer in hospital.

But despite the concerns, police have now confirmed the parades had passed 'without incident' or arrest.

A police spokeswoman added no protesters had been identified at any of the marches throughout the day.

Chief Superintendent Hazel Hendren, divisional commander for Greater Glasgow Division, said: "All four of the processions passed off without incident, with no protestors identified on any of the routes or anywhere else in the city."

Buses and cars were brought to a halt as an event by the Pride of Govan Flute Band welcomed members from 17 bands from across the country to Glasgow, with a heavy police presence visible from early this morning.

Around 800 Loyalists took to the street, and council officials had previously said they ‘deeply regret’ the disturbance to the community in Govan caused by the march.

This came after a reported refusal to withdraw by the Pride of Govan organisers after a request by the council.
