Emergency services were called to Great Western Road at around 7.30am on Saturday after a 65-year-old man was struck by a bus.

Officers say the road remains closed between Byres Road and Cleveden Road following the incident.

Police have launched an appeal for any witnesses into the crash to come forward at this time.

Road policing sergeant Nick Twigg said: “Our thoughts are with the family and friends of the man who has died. Our officers will continue to support them as enquiries progress.

“We’ve already spoken to a number of witnesses but I’d appeal to anyone who saw what happened, and hasn’t already been in contact with police, to please get in touch.

“Likewise, if you have any footage of the area at the time, perhaps dashcam or private CCTV, please review this and bring anything of significance to our attention.”

Anyone with information is urged to contact Police Scotland on 101 quoting reference 0766 of January 27.
