Five teenagers have been arrested after a 61-year-old man was attacked and racially abused in Glasgow.

The man confronted a group of young people after they threw a firework at his house in Berryburn Place, Barmulloch, at about 00:45 on Sunday.

He was then racially abused and had bricks thrown at him. He was treated in hospital and later released.

Police said four males, aged 16, 17 and two aged 15, and a 17-year-old female had been arrested over the incident.

They are expected to appear at Glasgow Sheriff Court on Wednesday.
