Probe after man detained by police in Glasgow dies

An investigation is to be carried out after a man died on Boxing Day - four days after being detained by police.

Police Scotland said officers stopped and detained two men on Saracen Street, Glasgow, at about 19:05 on 22 December.

A 43-year-old man became unwell and was taken to Glasgow Royal Infirmary, where he died on Boxing Day.

The Crown Office has asked the Police Investigations and Review Commissioner to carry out an independent investigation into the circumstances.
