Statement from Mears Group on the tragic events in Glasgow

Mears Group is deeply saddened and shocked by the tragic events in the heart of Glasgow today.

We are contracted by the Home Office to provide housing and support services to asylum seekers in Scotland.  

We will not anticipate a live police investigation, but we can confirm that the attack happened in a hotel where we are housing asylum seekers during the lockdown period.

We will provide more details as we are able to and our priority is to look after the welfare of our service users who will no doubt be traumatised by this terrible event.  Tonight, we also think of the staff in the hotel and our colleagues at the scene – all are in our thoughts.
