A POLICE probe has been launched after a schoolgirl was brought to a health centre to be treated for burns.

The six-year-old was taken into Govanhill Health Centre today where the alarm was raised at around 12.10pm.

The Evening Times understands that she was taken from a property in Bankhall Street to the local health centre.

It is not known how she acquired the injuries but she was then rushed to the Royal Hospital for Sick Children.

Several cops cars swooped into Bankhall Street shortly after and a police officer stood guard at a close.

City detectives were also at the scene and appeared to be handling evidence, wearing white gloves.

The force, however, said that they are still trying to establish what happened to the youngster.

A Police Scotland spokeswoman said: "A six-year-old girl has been taken to the Royal Hospital for Sick Children where she has been treated for burns.

"Enquiries are ongoing to establish the full circumstance surrounding the incident."
