Meanwhile, Glasgow City Council bosses are urging pupils to be aware when crossing roads. 

A local authority spokesperson said: “We are aware that a pupil was taken to hospital as a precaution following an incident nearby at the end of the school day and the headteacher has been in contact with the family to see how they are doing.

“Pupils are routinely reminded to care when travelling to and from school and be aware of their safety when crossing roads and in the local community.”  

The Southside road was closed for a short time whilst emergency services dealt with the incident.
