The woman, who wishes to remain anonymous, told us: “Police had closed off Farmeloan Road.

“There were plenty of cops about and police tape – it looked quite serious.”

She said: “A 32-year-old man has been arrested following a road traffic collision involving a car and a police vehicle in Rutherglen.

“The car initially made off before being abandoned on Victoria St.”
