A 51-year-old has been arrested in connection with the death of a man in Glasgow.

Emergency services rushed to Tollcross in the east end of the city on Sunday following reports of a man with serious injuries.

Following a post-mortem examination, his death is currently being treated as suspicious, and his next of kin have been made aware.

Police Scotland said a 51-year-old man was arrested in connection with the death.

Detective chief inspector Graham McCreadie said: “Extensive enquiries have been ongoing since the deceased was discovered on Sunday, and I want to reassure the community that we are treating this as an isolated incident.

“You will see a significant police presence in the area whilst we carry out investigations.

“Officers will be carrying out door-to-door enquiries and gathering CCTV and dash-cam footage which could provide the inquiry team with additional information.

“Anyone with any concerns can approach officers at any time.

“Although an arrest has been made, we are still carrying out significant enquiries and I would urge anyone with information on this incident to contact us as soon as possible.

“Any witnesses, or anyone who holds any information, no matter how insignificant it may seem, should get in touch with us.”
