According to the Greenock Telegraph, officers have blocked the road off at Glenpark Drive, a short way down the road.

St John’s Primary School, which sits off Glenburn Street, said that the ongoing police presence had created access issues.

The school stated: “Due to an ongoing Police incident, access to the school building is limited.
