POLICE have detained a young woman who was protesting a Home Office dawn raid in Glasgow.

The protesters have surrounded a Home Office van in the Scottish city’s Kenmure Street, with one person reportedly crawling underneath to prevent it moving.

Around 200 people are at the scene and could be heard chanting “these are our neighbours, let them go” and “shame on you”.

Around 30 police officers were drafted in and have surrounded the van to keep those detained inside.

Now, at least one person has been detained. The young woman could be heard to scream as around eight police officers took her out of the crowd.

SNP politicians, including Glasgow Central MP Alison Thewliss and First Minister and constituency MSP Nicola Sturgeon, have been quick to condemn the Home Office’s actions.

However, protesters have highlighted the presence of Police Scotland vehicles and suggested that Holyrood is complicit in the dawn raids.

A Police Scotland spokesperson previously said: "Around 9.55 am this morning, Thursday, May 13, 2021, police were called to support colleagues at the UK Border Agency at an address in Kenmure Street, Pollokshields, Glasgow.

"A number of protesters are now at the location. Officers are at the scene and enquiries are continuing.

"The call was made by UK Immigration Enforcement after a group of protesters gathered at the address where UKIE staff were in attendance. Police Scotland doesn't assist in the removal of asylum seekers. Officers are at the scene to police the protest and to ensure public safety."

Police Scotland has been contacted for comment on any arrests made.
