The body of a man found dead in a Glasgow flat has been named locally as Steven Clark.

Carrbridge Drive in Maryhill's Wyndford estate remains cordoned off by police who are investigating the "suspicious" death.

Dozens of officers descended on the block last night following the discovery of the 45-year-old at around 7.55pm last night. 

A post-mortem is set to take place to determine the exact circumstances surrounding the death.

We earlier told how a resident said: “There was loads of police late last night all rushing to the flats. 

“I’ve heard rumours over what has happened. It’s obviously something big if they have shut all that off.”

Another added: “The police have been at the flats since the back of midnight. 

“I live in the bottom floor and my door went. Two officers were just asking me questions and said an incident had taken place. 

“After that forensics were in and out the block throughout the night. 

“They haven’t told us anything but we need to sign to get in and out the flats.”
