A 'potentially hazardous substance' sparked an emergency response on a busy street in Glasgow last night.

The Scottish Fire and Rescue Service say they were alerted to the incident on Polwarth Street in the city's West End at 7pm on Thursday, February 22.

Following that, three fire trucks along with other fire resources were sent to the scene.

However, once arrived, crews were no longer required to respond.

Now, Police Scotland has revealed the incident was a 'false call with good intent'.

A spokesperson for the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service said: "We were called to assist emergency service partners at 7pm on Thursday, February 22, at Polwarth Street, Glasgow in relation to an incident involving a potentially hazardous substance.

"Operations control mobilised three appliances and other resources to the area, but we were not required to respond and crews left the scene at 8.16pm."
