Ten people have been arrested following a protest by a pro-Palestinian group at a defence engineering firm in Glasgow.

Activists from Glasgow Palestine Action gained access to the Thales Group site, in Govan, on Tuesday morning.

They say the firm makes components for drones which have been used against Palestinian people in Gaza.

Police Scotland said seven women and three men had been arrested. They were due to appear from custody at Glasgow Sheriff Court on Wednesday.
