A plane on approach to Glasgow Airport two months ago almost collided with a drone, it has emerged.

The UK Airprox Board, which deals with near miss incidents, said the pilot of a Boeing 737 reported seeing a drone about 100ft below him.

The incident happened while the plane was flying at about 1,200ft, north of Clydebank, at 15:50 on Sunday 6 March.

A report said the pilot did not have time to take avoiding action and there was “a definite risk of collision”
