Evening bus services could be withdrawn from a Glasgow neighbourhood due to rising levels of “anti-social behaviour”.

First Bus have said they have taken advice from Police Scotland to potentially withdraw services from 6pm within the Pollok area of the city.

It comes after a “significant increase” in anti-social behaviour on the service.

A spokesperson for the travel firm apologised but said safety of staff and customers is the “top priority”.

Graeme Macfarlan, commercial director at First Bus Scotland, said: “The safety of our staff and customers is always our number one priority.

“We are monitoring the situation on services in the Pollok area due to an increase in anti-social behaviour in recent weeks.

“We haven’t withdrawn any services yet, but we will consider this course of action if this behaviour continues.

“We will not tolerate any abusive or violent behaviour towards our staff or other customers and any such incidents will be reported to Police Scotland.”
