Fire crews tackling a major blaze at a world-famous art school said they have prevented the destruction of the building's structure and the majority of its contents.
Flames engulfed Glasgow School of Art's Charles Rennie Mackintosh building at around 12.30pm, with firefighters battling all day to save one of Scotland's most famous structures.
The blaze has now been brought under control after what has been described as a "very black day" for the institution.
