POLICE arrested 14 people during the Orange Order marches which took over the streets of Scotland’s biggest city at the weekend.

Glasgow saw thousands take part in more than 50 marches organised across the city over the weekend, with police warning that they would not tolerate “offensive behaviour” during the processions.

Now, the divisional commander for Greater Glasgow, Chief Superintendent Mark Sutherland, has revealed that 14 arrests were made during the Orange Order marches, including for “sectarian related breach of the peace”.

He also revealed that Police Scotland are investigating videos circulating online which appear to show “hateful singing” at the marches.

One video allegedly shows the Famine Song being played, which is overtly racist and calls on people of Irish descent to “go home”.

Sutherland said: “Officers in Glasgow made a total of 14 arrests during the Orange Order processions on Saturday, September 18. The offences were primarily for public disorder and acts of anti-social behaviour, but also included sectarian related breach of the peace.

“There were outbreaks of racist and sectarian singing by some of those who attended to support the processions, this is utterly unacceptable and we completely condemn this behaviour.

“We are aware of videos circulating that show some of this hateful singing and are already investigating a number of these.

“Our main priority throughout the event was to maintain public safety and ensure minimum disruption to the wider public.”
