A 43-year-old man has been arrested following the death of a man in Glasgow.

Police were called to a block of flats in Elmvale Street, Springburn, at about 15:50 on Tuesday after reports of a disturbance in a garden.

A man was taken to Glasgow Royal Infirmary, where he died a short time later.

The identity of the man is not yet known but the death is being treated as suspicious.

A post mortem examination will take place and a report will be sent to the procurator fiscal.
