Media captionVideo of 'referendum assault' emerges

A video has emerged which appears to show a supporter of the United Kingdom kicking out at a female protestor.

The footage is claimed to have been taken during a confrontation in Glasgow's Argyle Street on Saturday.

It is said to show a group of "Yes" supporters confronting members of a right wing organisation who were speaking in favour of the Union.

A man can be seen kicking out at a woman who had apparently tried to grab his megaphone.

She can later be seen lying on the ground as members of the public crouch over her.

An eyewitness told the Sunday Herald newspaper that an ambulance was called for the woman, but was later cancelled.

Police Scotland initially said the event passed off peacefully, but subsequently revealed that a man had been arrested in connection with an allegation of assault.

They said a report had been sent to prosecutors.
