Singer Ellie Goulding was forced to plead with music fans after scuffles broke out during her appearance at a gig in Glasgow.

Footage posted online appears to show women brawling during her performance at Sunday's Summer Sessions event in the city's Bellahouston Park.

In one clip, a woman is seen lying on the ground as she is hit and kicked by several others.

In the footage Goulding is heard telling the crowd: "Will you guys look out for each other?

"If anyone falls down you help if it's your friend or not.

"No fighting. Come on. Peace. No fighting. There's no need for it."

Around 35,000 people were at Sunday's event to see headliner DJ Calvin Harris with support from Goulding and John Newman.

Saturday's line-up featured Scottish singer Paolo Nutini, Grace Jones and The View.

Police Scotland said a total of 38 arrests were made over the weekend for minor offences.
