Police were earlier called to reports of a robbery outside a bank in Glasgow's east end.

Officers sealed off the street at the Royal Bank of Scotland on Duke Street at the Forge Shopping Centre at about 14:30 after an alarm was raised.

It is believed a security guard was robbed in the street.

A spokeswoman for the force said: "We were called to a report of a robbery at 2.30pm at a bank on Duke Street. Officers are in attendance."
