The Lord Provost of Glasgow City Council has made a call for all businesses with unused PPE supplies to donate them to the front line medical and care workers. 

Philip Braat called for donations of unopened aprons, face masks, hand sanitisers and plastic gloves to be donated to the council so it can be distributed among the workers who need it most. 

He said: "In these incredibly difficult times, I am appealing directly to our business community. Increased demands for important protective equipment used daily by our front line staff like care workers means supplies all over the country are under real pressure. 

"Please let us know if you have stock that you are able to donate to help us prevent the spread of Covid-19.
