A vacant Glasgow pub will be turned into a community centre.

A planning application by the Glasgow Muslim Aid was accepted to transform the old Banks Bar at 52 River Road, Carmyle, into a hub.

Documents reveal that it will be used between 10am and 10pm , serving as a social and cultural space, welcoming members of the community.

There will also be a library of Islamic knowledge established, as well as a safe space with food and drinks.

It will be run by volunteers and be geared towards young people and the elderly.
