A Glasgow street has been sealed off for public safety after high winds caused scaffolding at a luxury flat development to crash to the ground.

Work is continuing to create 98 luxury apartments in the historic Park Circus area of the west end.

The developers said no one was injured and all health and safety protocols were followed.

Police Scotland and the Health and Safety Executive have been made aware of the incident and Lyndoch Place has been closed.


A council spokesman said the contractor had arranged for cars within the exclusion zone to be removed and security guards are monitoring the site. The scaffolding will be dismantled in the coming days.

A stretch of the outer ring of Park Circus in the west end was never built because money for the 19th century scheme ran out.

Park Quadrant Residences took on the challenge of filling the 166-year-old missing link.

The exterior of the eleven buildings reflect the grandeur of the era in which they were imagined by Charles Wilson in 1851, while the interiors combine classic and contemporary design. The penthouse apartments, costing in excess of £1million are already sold out.
