Specialist archivists from the Glasgow School of Art have begun the
operation to conserve items damaged by the fire that ripped through the
Charles Rennie Mackintosh building in the city centre on Friday.

The salvage effort will also retrieve the work of students who were
preparing for their final-year degree show in the building at the time of
the fire, which is believed to have started in the basement.
