It could be crimson glory, but there are a few red roses. Does it have a strong scent?

Just going by that top pic, I'm wondering if it might possibly be one of the rootstock roses?

Does it have strong scent and lots of thorns.

I would definitely agree on this one. It is Velvety Red Blossom on Rose Rootstock.

Hahahaha and that is probably what my Great News Rose is, that was ordered at a major rose nursery years ago, I sent photos, they did say it it "didn't look like quite like Great News but who knows" and would not refund..... :evil:
