A child brought to Glasgow after being seriously burned in a gas explosion in Pakistan has officially become a citizen of Scotland.

Sudais Ameen Asif received his UK passport at his lawyer office on Saturday - more than four years after he arrived in the country.

At just under two-months-old, Sudais was badly burned in a gas explosion that ripped through the apartment block where he stayed in Peshawar, Pakistan.

The accident killed his father Mohammad Ameen, 30, mother Sumaira, 28, and 13-month-old brother Abdul Haseeb.

Doctors in Pakistan said they could do no more for the injured baby and recommended he be treated in Glasgow, where his uncle Mohammad Asif lived.

Scots raised more than £17,000 to bring the Afghan infant to Yorkhill Hospital where the NHS met the cost of his specialist treatment.

Glasgow charity Positive Action in Housing (PAH) was a major part of the campaign to allow Sudais to be treated in the city.

Mohammad N Asif shared the happy news on Facebook, thanking Latta & Co Solicitors for their support.

He wrote: "Scotland’s Child Sudais Ameen Asif has officially become a citizen of Scotland after receiving his UK passport at his lawyer office.

"We would like to thank Latta & Co Solicitors for their never ending legal support and assistance.

"In 2014 when Sudais arrived here, they got him Indefinite Leave to remain. Later on they helped us to adopt him and now they helped us to get his passport.

"Our heartfelt thanks and appreciation's to Hannah Cosgrove who worked really hard representing Sudais from the very start.

"Our special thanks to Roisin Lalley and all the wonderful staff at Latta & Co who were always there for Sudais to help.

"Never forgetting the facts that Sudais was already in the hearts and mind of wonderful Scots and is being loved by them unconditionally.

"Thank you from us all here."

Earlier in the year, we reported how little Sudais had started school in Carmyle.
