Two 16-year-old boys have been taken to hospital - one with a stab wound - after a "large-scale disturbance" at a Glasgow park.

The alarm was raised about an ongoing incident in Clarkston at about 7.45pm on Tuesday.

A Police Scotland helicopter was deployed to the scene between Overlee Park and Netherton Braes.

The force said the second 16-year-old was being treated for a head injury at the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital.

Detective Sergeant Gordon Walker said: "Our investigation is at an early stage to establish more information on those involved in this disturbance, and officers are currently carrying out enquiries in the area to gather more details on the incident."

The incident took place on the day pupils across Scotland received their exam results.

Local councillor David Macdonald said he understood a large group of young people had gathered in the Overlee Park area to celebrate.

He told BBC Radio Scotland's Good Morning Scotland programme: "As I understand from various sources within the community, the group from Clarkston and Stamperland met up and some other young people from another area ... had arrived in a vehicle and there were some weapons taken out."

Mr Macdonald said at least five or six ambulances were on the scene throughout the course of the evening, alongside a "large police presence".

He added: "My thoughts are with the victims and the families who were affected by last night's violence."
