A teenager from Glasgow has been detained by police after a message was posted on Facebook allegedly inciting others to commit acts of disorder.
The 16-year-old was held during an operation in the city’s south side at 12:40 on Monday.
It comes after rioting and looting in London at the weekend spread to other English cities.
Police said they were monitoring social networking sites closely and would take “decisive action” to prevent violence.
The Strathclyde force said there was no intelligence “at this time” to suggest that there was any trouble planned.
Assistant Chief Constable Fiona Taylor said: “This detention shows that we are monitoring the situation closely and we will take decisive action to prevent anyone inciting violence of any kind in Glasgow or anywhere else in the force area.
