Two men arrested after the Glasgow attack remained in custody yesterday. One of them, believed to be the driver, was critically ill in hospital with severe burns. He was under armed guard. Another man, 27, who had been in the vehicle, was in police custody.Yesterday a car in the grounds of the hospital in which he was being treated was destroyed in a controlled explosion. Police said it was linked to the investigation.
Police declined to give details about those arrested, but Strathclyde's Assistant Chief Constable John Neilson revealed that those held in Glasgow were not Scottish. He told a public meeting at a city mosque: "The people we have in custody came to Scotland a short while ago to seek work. Other than that, I can't tell you - but I'm sure the community in Glasgow in particular will be reassured. These are not your young people." Security sources said later none of the five arrested was born in Britain.
