Police clashed with pro-Palestinian protesters after activists shut down an arms manufacturer in Glasgow.

Violence broke out on Wednesday between demonstrators and officers at Thales factory in Govan, who had linked arms to block the entrance to the building.

Dozens of police officers arrived to break the line, unlinking protesters who had set up directly in front of the turnstiles at the site entrance.

Protesters, many of whom were masked and wearing keffiyehs, were loaded into police vehicles and removed from the site.

Individuals refusing to move were seen being restrained by officers and wrestled to the floor before being detained.

Thales, a French multinational company, designs and develops technology for the defence industry, including military drones.
