TEENAGER Paige Doherty died from wounds to her neck, it has been revealed.

The 15-year-old schoolgirl’s death certificate has disclosed that the cause of her death was “sharp force injuries” to the neck.

A search was launched when Paige, from Clydebank, was reported missing on March 19 after she failed to arrive at her Saturday job at a hair salon.

Her body was found two days later in bushes at the side of Great Western Road, a busy route connecting Clydebank and Glasgow.

John Leathem, 31, of Clydebank, has appeared in court charged with the teenager's murder.

Paige’s death certificate states that she was found dead on March 21 at 12.53pm in a lane near to the A82 at Great Western Road.

Glasgow Times:

Her death was registered at Clydebank registry offices by her stepfather Andrew Munro.

There was only one primary cause of death which was listed as the neck injuries.

On Saturday, about 400 mourners donned pink clothing and carried heart-shaped balloons when they took part in a memorial walk to pay tribute to Paige.

At the spot where the 15-year-old’s body was discovered in Clydebank, prayers were said and a single pink balloon was released into the sky by the girls who organised the event on Saturday.

About 400 people turned up for the walk including friends, relatives and neighbours of the schoolgirl.

The procession stopped at the place where Paige’s body was found for a moment of remembrance.
