A man has been taken to hospital after an incident at a flat in the Haghill area of Glasgow.

Police said they were called to a property in Corsock Street at about 18:00 after a man climbed onto a window ledge.

Fire and ambulance crews also attended along with trained police negotiators.

After a fire broke out within the flat the man jumped from the window, police said. His injuries were not thought to be life-threatening.

Neighbours were moved out of the surrounding properties while the incident was ongoing and part of the street was cordoned off.

A police spokesman added: "He was taken to hospital by ambulance for treatment.

"Police are still at the scene and inquiries are ongoing."
