Glass panel plunges ten floors from Glasgow hospital
It follows two similar incidents at the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital last year.
A pane of glass has fallen ten floors from near the top Glasgow's Queen Elizabeth University Hospital.
It shattered near the front entrance of the building on Thursday morning, but nobody is believed to have been injured.
NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde (NHSGGC) described the glass pane as an "external decorative panel".
It follows similar incidents in May and July last year involving the same type of panel.
A NHSGGC spokesman said: "Fortunately no-one was hurt and the area was immediately secured. Facilities staff are on site to assess and repair the damage.
"It is not at this time clear why this happened."
The £842m Queen Elizabeth University Hospital opened in 2015.
It emerged earlier this year that it will cost around £6m to remove potentially flammable external cladding from the Queen Elizabeth and another Glasgow hospital.
