A BODY has been pulled from the River Kelvin.

Police divers made the recovery at 2.40pm today.

Emergency services were first called to the scene near Queen Margaret Bridge following a report by a member of the public at around 1.10pm.

A police spokeswoman confirmed the death, adding that the person's identity would be publicly released after the family were notified.

He said: "It was a bit of a shock. You don't see much trouble down there."
