Two American teenagers want to save Glasgow

Two American teenagers offered their help to save Glasgow.

The environmentally friendly 'Hope Scout' Christian volunteers pitched to save the industrial wasteland in Glasgow in a YouTube video, which went viral, although it has been criticised by viewers as a patronizing and racist clip.

Speaking on their social media clip, which sees them mis-pronounce Scotland's capital city, the pair said: "We are volunteers. Currently we are part of 'Hope Scouts'. We both love serving.

"You are probably wondering - why 'Glass-co'? High levels of poverty, high levels of alienation.- one-third of all children in the city are estimated to be living in the poverty."

However, following negative feedback the duo removed their post, which has subsequently been re-uploaded by other people.
