The vehicle was situated right outside the terminal building and was caught on video engulfed in flames.

Emergency services arrived on the scene shortly after 2pm and successfully managed to put out the fire.

Police Scotland said: ““At around 1.55pm hours on Sunday, February 14, police and emergency services responded to an electrical fire within a vehicle outside the main terminal building of Glasgow Airport.
