It is thought around 17 employees tested positive, the Daily Recorded reported.

An M&S spokesman said: "The health and wellbeing of our colleagues and customers always comes first and we have enhanced cleaning procedures and measures in places across all M&S stores to help ensure social distancing. 

"Any colleague that tests positive for Covid-19, or who has been in close contact with someone who tests positive, is supported to self-isolate straight away on full pay.

"As well as working with NHS Test and Protect, we also have our own robust contact tracing system to ensure that we reach all relevant colleagues.

"We also carry out a deep clean of the store as a precaution.

"We are confident that the Sauchiehall Street M&S store is following all proper procedures and is fully in line with Scottish Government regulations.”
