A huge Glasgow city centre building could be turned into student flats.

A planning application has been submitted to convert Findlay House on West Nile Street into accommodation.

The Nottinghamshire County Council Pension Fund applied for the use of change on the site, which was built in 1975 and is currently being used as retail on the ground floor and offices above.

It is home to the Innins and Gunn taproom, and Mexican, Brazilian and Latin American restaurant Las Iguanas.

However, the bid only seeks the conversion of the ground floor entrance and upper four floors.

The council proposed the development to help the "well-documented shortage of student accommodation" as it said the building "no longer fulfils the requirements of modern office users".

It would create 48 student units, all studios with en-suite and kitchens.
