The Queen Elizabeth University Hospital has been evacuated this morning.

It is understood a suspected fire has broken out on the first floor. 

Footage on social media shows multiple fire engines and police at the scene as the staff and patients are evacuated outside the superhospital grounds. 

Glasgow Times:

An eyewitness told the Glasgow Times: "As I was walking from the multistorey to the main entrance, I saw about half a dozen fire engines along the bus stops. 

"The firefighters were telling everyone to get back and had cordoned off an area between the main entrance and the children's hospital. 

"A couple of them were standing pointing to the roof. 

"There were loads of patients, like me, who were wondering what would happen to our appointments, but they wouldn't give us any information. 

"A nurse told me they thought it was a small fire."

Scottish Labour’s health spokeswoman Monica Lennon raised concerns about the incident.

She tweeted: “Emergency services are on the scene and I hope we hear very soon that everyone is safe and well.”

An SFRS spokeswoman said: “We have got crews in attendance at the moment.
“We received the first call at 9.22am and have four appliances in attendances.”
