POLICE have launched an investigation in Faifley after a driver allegedly failed to stop for officers more than three miles away in Drumchapel.

Residents reported a police convoy in Drumchapel, and then a large police presence in the Faifley area, late on Thursday morning.

One eyewitness in Faifley said she saw two police vans, four police cars and a police helicopter at around 11.30am on July 23.

She added that police officers told her to go home and stay inside. 

She told the Post: "One of the officers told us to stay out of the area for the time being as there had been a serious incident and they were looking for someone."

Another resident reported seeing "at least five" police vehicles travelling at speed past a shop in Duntocher shortly after 11.30am on Thursday.

A spokesperson for Police Scotland said: "Officers are carrying out enquiries in the Faifley area of Clydebank in connection with tracing the driver of a car that failed to stop when signalled to by officers in the Drumchapel area."
