A Glasgow nightclub that had planned on hosting "one last sesh" despite government advice has now announced they have "forcibly closed". 

The Shed had come under fire by punters after it announced its ticketed events would go ahead with reduced numbers. 

Its decision to remain open was labeled "cretinous" and "irresponsible" after other clubs had announced closures.

Following a governmental decision to close all pubs, restaurants and entertainment venues on Friday, the club was forced to announce its events would not go ahead.

The announcement read: "This has been the toughest week in Shed history, finally the decision has been made, and to be perfectly honest, we agree.

"We have the upmost respect for everyone from NHS to supermarket workers, haulage drivers and everyone else taking a pasting just now to keep things moving, you’re all superstars and we wish you well over the next however long this takes."

In the U-turn statement, the club urged punters to "stay safe" and to "follow governmental advice to the letter".
