A man has been arrested over a disturbance during a Republican flute band's parade in Glasgow.

The alleged incident happened on Abercromby Street, near St Mary's RC Church, after the march left Shuttle Street at about 15:30 on Saturday.

A Loyalist counter-protest was scheduled to take place on Abercromby Street.

The BBC understands that police were alerted to allegations of sectarian behaviour.

Police said the man who was arrested was released on bail. He is expected to appear at Glasgow Sheriff Court on Monday.
