Police are trying to find the identity of a man who was rescued from the water in Strathclyde Park.

The man is in a critical condition after he was rescued in the Goose Beach area of the park around 3.25pm on Monday. 

Police say he appeared to have been sunbathing on his own in the area before entering the water and getting into difficulty.

"He has a tattoo of a small cross on left arm with three dots above it.

"At the time he was wearing a grey zipper, a navy top, navy swim shorts and dark trainers and was in possession of a Tesco shopping bag. 

"Anyone with information which could help identify the man is asked to contact police on 101, quoting incident 2284 of Monday, 1 June, 2020."
