Two people have been treated by paramedics following an 'explosion' at a factory in the Whiteinch area of Glasgow.

Police Scotland has confirmed that they received an emergency call just after 3.30pm.

Officers are at South Street investigating and with fire crews with reports on social media suggest near-by buildings shook.

It followed reports from across the city of a “loud bang” and “noise like a gas explosion”.

Officers and firefighters converged on EMR Scrapyard on South Street to investigate while reports suggest nearby buildings shook.

EMR had earlier said that nobody was hurt and that there was no damage to the depot infrastructure.

Social media users reported the explosion being heard in Scotsoun, Broomhill, Govan, Whiteinch, Knightswood and several other locations on the south of the city.

A police cordon was put in place and the road closed to traffic.

The fire service confirmed that they had sent four vehicles to the scene.

A spokesman said: “Firefighters are currently working alongside partners to make the area safe.”

It has been reported that emergency services were called to EMR Scrapyard.

One witness said: “Walking home from the shop 25 minutes ago and heard the loudest bang ever and the ground shook... What’s going on?

“Someone said an explosion in Scotstoun!!! Surely I wouldn’t have felt that in Govan. Hearing sirens and helicopters now.”

One man who working in a nearby warehouse said: “I just heard a big bang and the whole building shook.

“Stuff started falling down from the roof.”

A spokesman for EMR said: “We are pleased to report that no injuries were sustained and there was no damage to the depot infrastructure. We would like to apologise to the local community and businesses for any inconvenience. “
