A MAN has been taken to hospital after a stand-off with police and emergency services which lasted almost four hours. 

The man is now in the Glasgow Royal Infirmary for assessment following the police incident in Maryhill.

Police, fire and ambulance teams were called to a flat in Leyden Garden just before 4 pm on Sunday. 

Police Scotland closed off the road at Bilsland Drive while their specialist negotiators dealt with the incident. 

It is also understood that neighbours were prevented from entering the close of the flat. 

The force confirmed this morning that the man surrendered several hours later and is now in the care of the hospital.
