Scottish Conservative councillor for the area, David Meikle, said he understands the flats are due for demolition.

He said he hoped a full investigation would establish what happened.

He added: "I'm shocked and saddened to hear about the tragic death of a young boy falling from a block of flats in Pollokshields.

"My thoughts go out to the family who have lost a child.

"There needs to be a full investigation into this incident so we can get to the bottom of what happened and ensure nothing like this happens again."
