Five children are in hospital after reportedly being hit by a car, with a man arrested in connection with the incident.
Footage posted on social media on Monday showed emergency services in attendance at the scene in the Blackhill area of Glasgow.
Crowds of people could be seen gathered on the pavement of Provanmill Road in the footage, with police vans and ambulances on site.
It is not yet clear the ages of the young people, or what their present condition is.
In a statement, officers confirmed that a 34-year-old man has been arrested in connection with the incident, with enquiries ongoing.
A Police Scotland spokesperson said: “Around 5.40pm on Monday, 22 August, police were called to a report of five youths struck by a car on Provanmill Road, Glasgow.
“Officers attended and the five youths were taken to the Royal Hospital for Children.
“A 34-year-old man has been arrested in connection with this incident and enquiries are continuing.”

“Councillor Sharon Greer and I are thinking of the families at this time. Thanks to the emergency services attending the scene.”
Scottish Labour MSP Paul Sweeney added: “A truly horrendous thing to have happened in Blackhill tonight.
