A fundraiser for the funeral of mum found dead in a Govan flat has seen support from hundreds of people. 

Almost £10,000 has now been raised for the Mercy Baguma's son and family in just over 48-hours, close to its target. 

The 34-year-old mum, from Uganda, was found dead on Saturday, August 22, next to her malnourished one-year-old son. 

A fundraiser described her as "always positive and always put her family first."

It read: "Her smile made everyone so welcome and comfortable.

"Please consider helping out her loved ones through this difficult time as they navigate this tragedy and move forward in life without her."

It is understood that Ms Baguma, who was in her thirties, had lost her job after her limited leave to remain expired and she was no longer allowed to work.

She claimed asylum while living in extreme poverty, and was relying on food from friends and charitable organisations.
