Nine people arrested so far over bonfire night disorder in Scotland

Nine people have been arrested over bonfire night disorder in Scotland - with a police chief saying "these arrests are just the start".

Emergency crews in Edinburgh and Glasgow saw the worst of the bad behaviour on Sunday 5 November, with a number of officers injured and two arrests made on the night.

Police Scotland has since arrested a further seven people and said it has identified at least 14 others.

In the Niddrie area of the capital, riot officers faced off against a mob that were launching fireworks, petrol bombs and other projectiles.

A 31-year-old man and 24-year-old woman were later arrested and charged with fireworks offences.

An 18-year-old man and 13-year-old boy were both arrested and charged with culpable and reckless conduct and being in possession of a weapon.

The two men and the woman are expected to appear at court at a later date, while the teenager was reported to the relevant authorities.

In the Barmulloch area of Glasgow, officers were called to a report of youths fighting and throwing fireworks.

A 17-year-old man was arrested and charged with assault and being in possession of a weapon.

Two other men, aged 16 and 17, were also arrested and charged with assault.

Reports will be submitted to the Procurator Fiscal.

The force said enquiries into both incidents continue and "further arrests are expected".

Major incident portals have been set up for the public to submit information that could help identify all those involved.

Assistant Chief Constable Tim Mairs said: "We are continuing our enquiries into the significant disorder we experienced on bonfire night.

"These arrests are just the start, and we expect to make more in the coming weeks.

"We took a robust stance, and I am proud of the courage, discipline and professionalism that officers showed in the face of the violence that night.

"A number of our officers sustained minor physical injuries, however we are also aware of the mental impact that dealing with such significant levels of violence can have and will continue to support all officers affected.

"Nobody deserves to be injured in this way for doing their job. An emergency worker is also someone's son, daughter, husband or wife."
