Braehead shopping centre has introduced full-body scanners at its entrances as an additional safety measure following attacks in France and Austria.
The full-body scanners, which use technology to differentiate between weapons and regular items, will not cause hold-ups or queues.
Peter Beagley, centre director for intu Braehead said: “The safety of our visitors is always a top priority for us.
“Following the UK terror threat level being raised earlier this week after incidents in France and Austria, we have introduced two walk-through security scanners at one of the entrances to the centre.
“We don’t expect these to lead to long queues, or hold-ups coming into the centre.
“We’d also like to assure people that there is no direct threat or information of a threat to intu Braehead. We are simply making sure we have the best safety precautions we can for our visitors.”
