A MAJOR incident, which caused a beauty spot near Glasgow to be locked down this evening, was a false alarm. 

Police have confirmed they found no-one hurt or in difficulty at the Dams to Darnley Country Park, despite fears people were in trouble in the Ryat Linn Resevoir water. 

A large number of emergency crews were spotted in the Aurs Road area - between Barrhead and Newton Mearns - from around 7pm. 

But cops now say it was a "false alarm" and confirmed they would be reminding people of water safety in the coming days.

"Emergency services attended, and following enquiries, confirmed no-one was in difficulty.

“Local officers will be liaising with partners to remind people of the importance of water safety over the coming days."
