A teenager has died after he fell from the emergency exit of a bus heading into Glasgow city centre in the early hours of the morning.

Police Scotland said the 19-year-old sustained serious head injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene on Gorbals Street.

It is believed he was trying to climb off the bus when he fell from the exit.

Officers said inquiries were ongoing and a post-mortem examination would take place.

A Police Scotland spokeswoman added: "At around 12.25am on Sunday morning he got onto a bus at Stockwell Street.

"As it approached the bridge he tried to get off the bus but couldn't due to traffic on the road.
