A spokeswoman for Police Scotland said: ‘Around 9.55pm on Thursday, 16 July, police were called to a report of a boy seriously injured at a works site near Glenkirk Drive, Drumchapel, Glasgow.

‘Emergency services attended, and the 10-year-old was taken by ambulance to the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital, where he died a short time later.

‘Enquiries are continuing to establish the exact circumstances surrounding this incident, however the death is not being treated as suspicious.
