A woman was rushed to hospital after a dance event at a controversial Glasgow nightclub descended into chaos.

The 30-year-old collapsed outside The Arches, which was last year linked to the death of an underage schoolgirl, in the early hours of Sunday morning.

She is understood to have been found unconscious on the street outside at around 12.40am and the nightclub then closed.

Police said a number of people have been reported for a series of alleged drugs and alcohol offences.

A man was also reported for alleged licensing offences.

A GBX Anthems set by Radio Clyde DJ George Bowie had attracted a huge crowd to the club on Saturday night.

A Police Scotland spokeswoman said: "Officers were called to a report of a woman unconscious outside The Arches nightclub in Glasgow at around 12.40am.

"She was taken to the Glasgow Royal Infirmary.

"Several people were reported to the procurator fiscal for alleged drugs and alcohol offences.

"A man was reported for alleged licensing offences."

Legislation could be used to have the club's license reviewed within a matter a weeks.

It is the latest in a string of incidents at the club.

Teenager Regane MacColl died in February last year after apparently taking a pill at The Arches.

The 17-year-old from Clydebank collapsed in the club and later died in hospital.

Her death was said to be linked to red Mortal Kombat ecstasy tablets, and police issued a Scotland-wide warning about the potentially deadly pills.

Another clubber was taken to hospital after taking the same pills.

Police carried out a series of raids in Glasgow and Lanarkshire during an immediate crackdown on the killer tablets.

Around two months later, a 39-year-old man was left fighting for life after taking ecstasy as he waited to get into the city centre club.

Fourteen men were arrested in one night at the club when police used a sniffer dog to carry out searches.

The men - ages between 21 and 26 - were reported to the procurator fiscal for a range of offences last year.

The Evening Times previously revealed how bosses at The Arches hired private paramedics for their more popular events.

Police ordered a review of The Arches after Regane's death and the venue's licence was at risk.

However, the club kept it's licence after bosses said they has acted on the police's recommendations, including a strict over-21s policy.

But they soon re-instated an over-18s rule instead.

The Arches has repeatedly stated staff fully co-operate with police and have a "zero tolerance" approach to drugs.

A spokeswoman for The Arches said: ""The Arches can confirm that, in consultation with Police Scotland on the night, Saturday's GBX club was closed earlier than advertised. We are not in a position to comment further until a full review of the circumstances has taken place."
