Around 90 children were joined by Clyde the official Commonwealth Games mascot, as they competed in Glasgow's first Woodland Games in Drumchapel.

The event, which took place in Garscadden Woodland in the north west of the city, saw nine and 10-year-olds from Camstradden Primary School, St Clare's Primary School, Antonine Primary School and Langfaulds Primary School competing against one another to win a trophy made from Oak for their school.

Pupils competed in various sports, including cross country running, archery, tug of war, javelin, long jump, tree touch, relay and short putt.

Organised by The Forestry Commission Scotland (FCS) the event aimed to inspire young people to use their local woodland and catch the Commonwealth spirit.
