A Glasgow secondary school has been evacuated after a gas leak.

The Scottish Fire and Rescue Service (SFRS) initially responded to a fire alarm at Hyndland Secondary School, in the city's west end, about 15:00.

A fire service spokesman confirmed two appliances were sent to the school and firefighters discovered a gas leak had occurred in the building.

The spokesman said staff and children had been evacuated before fire crews arrived and there were no casualties.

A Glasgow City Council spokeswoman said engineers were working to repair the leak and the school was expected to reopen on Wednesday.
