This dramatic picture was emailed to us today (Wednesday, May 20) by bus driver Jonathan Mcallister.

It shows the extent of the damage done to a transit van while it was parked in the Boclair House building site in Bearsden.

It appears that a forklift truck sliced off the top of the van.

The historic red sandstone Boclair House is currently being converted into a hotel with housing at the rear of the property.

Mr Mcallister said: “I saw a man looking very shocked on the corner of the road, perhaps he’d been driving the forklift truck.

“It was a pretty awful thing to see and the police arrived.

“There was no ambulance so I hope that means that no-one was injured.”
