Emergency services attended the scene at the Mothers Pride Bakery on the city’s Duke Street at around 9pm last night (June 25th), with one man suffering head injuries and another reported to have injured his arm.

The Scottish Fire and Rescue Service said both men were taken to Glasgow’s Royal Infirmary, while their firefighters examined the building to ensure it was safe.
