A body discovered in the grounds of a Glasgow primary school has been identified.

Police Scotland said they were treating the death of Andrew McEwan, 35, from Kelvindale, as unexplained.

He was found in the grounds of Our Lady of the Rosary Primary School near Tarfside Gardens, Cardonald at about 12:30 on Tuesday.

Officers have appealed for information about Mr McEwan's last movements.

A post-mortem examination will be held to determine the cause of death.

The body was discovered by a member of the public in a part of the grounds where pupils do not normally have access.

Det Insp Peter Sharp said: "We do not yet know what has caused the death of Mr McEwan and therefore we are trying to piece together his movements up until his body was found.

"Officers are currently trying to get in touch with anyone who knew of him to try to establish when he was last seen and we would ask anyone who has any information about him to come forward."

Police patrols have been increased in the areas to reassure the public, but officers said there was nothing to suggest any wider issues of concern.
