An appeal has been launched to help the residents of the Park Inn in Glasgow, following a knife attack on Friday.
Aamer Anwar, a solicitor from Glasgow has launched an effort to clothe and equip the former residents, who were forced to evacuate the building by authorities without any of their belongings.
“People evacuated from Park Inn following Friday stabbings are in need of men’s & women’s clothes, underwear, jackets, phones & phone chargers,” he told followers on Twitter.
He said donations from the public could be taken to The Unity Centre, at 22 Ibrox Street, in Glasgow between 10am and 4pm tomorrow.
Police were called to the scene on West George Street at around 12:50pm on Saturday, where Constable David Whyte, 42, was one of six people stabbed.
He remains in hospital where his condition has now improved from critical to stable.
Police Scotland named the suspect in the attack as Badreddin Abadlla Adam, from Sudan.
Armed officers shot the 28-year-old in the Park Inn.
