Emergency crews have rushed to a shopping centre in Paisley following reports of a roof collapse inside the building.

Shoppers were evacuated from the Paisley Centre shortly after 3pm when an internal roof came crashing down onto the main concourse.

Police, fire and ambulance services have since rushed to the scene - although no one is thought to have been injured.

A Scottish Fire and Rescue Service spokesman said: “We are currently in attendance at the Paisley Centre on High Street, Paisley following reports of a collapsed structure."

“Operations Control have mobilised a number of resources to the scene, after the alarm was raised at 3.09pm."

He added: “There are no reported casualties.”

A Renfrewshire council spokesman confirmed local authority building officers attended the incident, but added further investigations would be carried out by the centre owners.

A Police Scotland spokeswoman added: "Police were made aware of a collapsed structure at the High Street entrance of the Paisley Centre at around 3:15pm."

"No injuries have been reported, however officers remain on the scene to assist in the closure of the centre."
