The incident, in Glenburn Street in Maryhill, started when a man allegedly barricaded himself inside the house and refused to leave yesterday.

A large police response was sparked by the drama, which began in the early afternoon and continued for a number of hours.

It is thought the armed officers attempted to negotiate with the man.

Roads in the immediate area were closed as the negotiations continued.

There was no-one else in the property at the time.

A Police Scotland spokeswoman said: "A 36-year-old man has been arrested in Glenburn Street, Maryhill, late this afternoon."
