MOSCOW, September 20 (RIA Novosti) – Glasgow police have arrested at least 11 people after mass protests over results of Scotland's independence referendum, local STV TV channel reported Saturday.

Earlier on Friday, police struggled to control a mass pro-union rally celebrating Scotland's "No" vote rejecting independence from the United Kingdom in tensions which began between the pro-independence "Yes" voters and the pro-union supporters who fired a flare in Glasgow.

According to the local policeman Andy Bates, the total of 700 people has gathered in Glasgow's George Square. Six people were arrested on Friday, another five – on Saturday with more possible arrests coming up.

"We have already secured valuable CCTV and other evidence which I am confident will lead to further arrests in the coming days," STV quoted Bates as saying.

Around 3.5 million votes were counted across 32 council areas in Scotland's referendum on Thursday which resulted in a 55 percent vote to keep Scotland in the United Kingdom.
