Stirling 'cut off' by G8 protest

Trouble flared when protesters moved from the eco-camp
Protesters and police are involved in stand-offs in Stirling as
the G8 summit at Gleneagles gets under way. Central Scotland
Police say trouble flared after people began moving from an
eco-campsite near Stirling towards the Gleneagles area.

Eyewitness Mark Wallace said there was "a major battle".

The centre of Stirling has been closed, as has the M9 at the
Granada services after it was blocked by protesters. Police are
warning of travel problems.

The M9 is the main route from Edinburgh to Gleneagles.
Protesters had promised to block all roads leading to the
summit venue.

Two people were arrested following clashes as police officers
were attacked with missiles.

In Stirling you would see the same kind of stand-off position
that we saw in Edinburgh on Monday Peter Wilson Chief

In a statement, the force said: "There have been isolated
incidents of violence in which police officers have come under
attack from a minority element.

"Some missiles have been thrown at officers and two people
have been arrested for violent behaviour.

"The movement from the camp is causing considerable
disruption around the Stirling area. The disruption is likely to
last throughout the day."
