Part of the quayside wall along the River Clyde in Glasgow has collapsed.

The wall, which was part of a riverside walkway at Anderston Quay, had been cordoned off on Wednesday after reports that it had become unstable.

Glasgow City Council said work had begun to assess the damage.

A spokesman said: "A local contractor with a good working knowledge of the quay walls in the area is now on site. The contractor is carrying out investigations on the quay wall."
