A spokesperson for the council said: “Due to a police incident, our Queenslie household waste recycling centre is currently closed to the public.

“Residents hoping to dispose of their household waste are asked to use an alternative waste centre while this incident is ongoing.

“We will update our social media when it is appropriate to re-open the waste centre.

“As this is a police incident, it would be inappropriate to comment further at this time.”

Glasgow Times: Specialist forensic officers have been pictured at the scene. 

Police blocked off access to the recycling centre which is used by the public.

Local authority workers who operate the site have been sent home while police take control of the crime scene.
