A dead baby has been found at a flat in Glasgow, police have said.

BBC Scotland understands the baby died several weeks ago and was concealed at an address in Ark Lane, in the Dennistoun area of the city.

The body was found on Monday after police were alerted. The death is currently being treated as unexplained.

A woman is said to be assisting with police inquiries and a post mortem will be carried out to establish exactly how and when the baby died.

A spokeswoman for Police Scotland said officers had been called to the flat at about 14:45 on Monday.

Inquiries into the death are ongoing, and a report will be submitted to the procurator fiscal.
