Council teams have been called in to break up the ice at Queen's Park. 

It comes after a 12-year-old boy fell through the ice and into the freezing pond yesterday afternoon. 

A police response was called to the waterway to clear members of the public from the space following the incident.

An eyewitness said that the boy was "not hurt, just soaked".

It follows after days of dozens of revellers taking to the South Side park to show off their skating skills. 

Ice skaters, hockey players and families were among those to enjoy the icy stretch over the weekend and into Monday.

Police had earlier attended the pond to disperse skaters after a concerned member of the public called officers.

A police spokeswoman said: "Officers in Glasgow were made aware of a 12-year-old boy who had fallen into the water at Queen's Park pond on Tuesday, 5 January.

"He did not require medical treatment. Members of the public were asked to come off the pond as a result. 

"Officers have had a visible presence in the park today to remind the public of the dangers that can be posed by walking on ice and frozen ponds."

Today, the local authority cleared the ice from the waterway to safeguard members of the public. 

A Glasgow City Council spokesman said: “Despite signs warning of thin ice on the pond and a police presence at the park, people have continued to go onto the ice, which is clearly a cause for concern. 

"To guard against a risk to safety and to prevent people from going on to the ice, we have broken up ice around the pond’s edge.”
