Earlier in the day, Police Scotland had warned that they would be stepping up patrols in the area, reminding the public that is illegal to drink alcohol in the park.

A force spokesman said: “We were called to a disturbance involving a large number of people in Kelvingrove park. Inquiries are ongoing.”

It is not the first time there has been disorder in the park.

Last year a teenage boy was taken to hospital following a disturbance.
