Police investigating the murder of a man who was viciously beaten in a Glasgow street want to trace a couple with a child who were seen in the area.

Kenneth Andrews, 41, was found in Dalmarnock Road, near Bridgeton, at about 16:20 on Sunday. He died a short time later in Glasgow Royal Infirmary.

Police want to trace people who may have witnessed the attack.

Among those is a couple with a child who were outside the Super Cook Chinese takeaway on Dalmarnock Road.

Det Insp Allan Burton, of Strathclyde Police, said he was confident that, with the help of the local community, the person responsible for Mr Andrews' death would be arrested.

"A full investigation is currently underway and I am now looking for particular people to come forward as soon as possible as I believe they may have witnessed the attack on Mr Andrews," he said.

"We now know that, around 16:20, a couple with a child were outside the Super Cook Chinese takeaway on Dalmarnock Road, which is very close to the scene of the attack.

"They are both in their 20s. The man was wearing a blue track suit top and the woman had on a cream-coloured length coat.

Det Insp Burton said local CCTV images also showed people in and around William Hill bookmakers on Dalmarnock Road and the Dominion pub next to it.

He added: "I am keen to speak to all these people, as they may have vital information regarding the murder of Mr Andrews.

"It is vital that we trace the person responsible for this vicious and sustained attack on Mr Andrews, which took place on a public street in the middle of the day."
