Men quizzed by police after Newton Mearns home incident

Two men are being questioned by police after an incident at a house in East Renfrewshire on Saturday.

A further two men were also taken to hospital with minor injuries, following the apparent stand-off in Newton Mearns.

Police were called to the property, in Muirhill Crescent, after what was described as a "disturbance".

The occupiers barricaded the door and refused to let them in and set a fire inside the property.

It was put out by Strathclyde Fire and Rescue.

Police negotiators were called to the scene before the first man left the house, at about 21:30, and the second, at 23:00.
