Police are appealing for information after a man was found “seriously injured” following an “assault” on Glasgow’s Union Street on Thursday morning.

At around 11.30am on June 30, emergency services flocked to the busy thoroughfare and the street was seen to be closed off by a police cordon.

A 48-year-old man was taken to Queen Elizabeth University Hospital with “serious injuries”.

The road remained closed for more than five hours, with police announcing that Union Street reopened shortly after 5pm the same day.

Now, officers are appealing for any witnesses or anyone with information to come forward.

Detective sergeant Chris Curness said: “We are appealing for any witnesses and anyone with information to get in touch with officers to assist with our enquiries.

“Anyone with information should contact police on 101 quoting incident number 1210 of June 30 or call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
