An investigation has been launched after the body of a man was found in a Glasgow flat. 

Carrbridge Drive in Maryhill's Wyndford estate has been cordoned off by officers after the discovery of the 45-year-old's body last night. 

Witnesses saw dozens of officers descend on the block last night, which remained sealed off by detectives.

The force have since confirmed they are treating the death as "suspicious" with a post-mortem set to take place to establish the cause.

A Police Scotland spokesperson said: "Around 7.55pm last night, the body of a 45-year-old man was found within a flat on Carrbridge Drive, Maryhill, Glasgow.

"A post mortem will take place in due course to establish the exact circumstances surrounding his death which at this time police are treating as suspicious.

"Enquiries are continuing."

One resident told the Evening Times: “There was loads of police late last night all rushing to the flats. 

“I’ve heard rumours over what has happened. It’s obviously something big if they have shut all that off.”

Another resident said: “The police have been at the flats since the back of midnight. 

“I live in the bottom floor and my door went. Two officers were just asking me questions and said an incident had taken place. 

“After that forensics were in and out the block throughout the night. 

“They haven’t told us anything but we need to sign to get in and out the flats.”
