A man found dead in the grounds of a Cardonald Primary School has been identified as Andrew McEwan. 

The 35-year-old from Highfield Place in Kelvindale, Glasgow was discovered within the surroundings of Our Lady of the Rosary Primary on Tuesday lunchtime. 

A post-mortem examination will take place in due course to establish the exact cause of death, which officers are currently treating as unexplained.

A report will be submitted to the Procurator Fiscal and officers have now appealed to anyone who knows of him to get in contact. 

Detective Inspector Peter Sharp, Govan Police Office, said: “We do not yet know what has caused the death of Mr McEwan and therefore we are trying to piece together his movements up until his body was found.
