PAIGE Doherty's mum has begged visitors to her murdered daughter's grave to respect the site. 

She urged people who left trinkets at the memorial to think again, pleading: "Yes, her death was very public but her grave isn’t public property, it belongs to me and is my daughter's resting place."

Paige was tragically murdered by brutal John Leathem at the age of just 15 while she was in his Clydebank deli.
