Two girls have been hit by a car in Glasgow's east end.

Emergency services were called to Crownpoint Road just before 9am this morning and closed down the road to rush-hour traffic.

Two schools, St Mungo's Academy and St Anne's Primary, are located nearby.

The boys' injuries are not thought to be serious.

A Police Scotland spokesperson said: "Officers were called to Crownpoint Road after reports of a car hitting two girls at around 8.50am.

"Emergency services are on the scene.

"At this stage, there appears to be no serious injuries."

A spokeswoman for Glasgow City Council added: "Due to a road traffic incident, Gallowgate has been closed (Westbound) between Fielden Street and Abercromby Street.

An initial version of this story said those hit by the car were boys, based of information from Police Scotland.
