A Glasgow university has launched a probe into a video of a student nurse speaking at an anti-lockdown protest yesterday. 

In footage which has been circulated across social media, the woman, who claims to be student nurse, is seen branding nurses "f***ing idiots" which was greeted by cheers from the crowd.

Glasgow Caledonian University warned that the video may lead to disciplinary action.

"I'm ashamed that I am a student nurse right now," the woman said at the George Square rally.

She said that during work placement at Queen Elizabeth University Hospital she "did not see one person die of Covid". 

"We need to be together. We need action. This lockdown needs to f*** off.”

A Glasgow Caledonian University spokesman said: “We are aware of a video circulating on social media which appears to be from a rally in Glasgow yesterday.

"If the person speaking in this video is found to be a student of GCU, it will be a matter for University disciplinary procedure.”

People were seen gathering in the square from 12pm despite stay-at-home guidance for the event organised by the group Scotland Against Lockdown. 

One man was arrested at the protest in connection with breaches under the Misuse of Drugs Act and a breach of the regulations.

Static protests are prohibited under current coronavirus restrictions in an effort to curb the spread of the virus.
