BTP appeal for information

police line

British Transport Police is appealing for information following the discovery of a man’s body at Glasgow Queen Street station on Saturday 5 January 2013.

Shortly after midday the body of the man, who has now been identified as a 24-year-old from Glasgow, was found on the railway line a short distance from the end of platform 8 – the low level of the station. His death is currently being treated as unexplained and officers are currently carrying out extensive enquiries to establish the circumstances surrounding his death. His relatives have been made aware.

At this stage officers believe he may have fallen from the railway overbridge in Dundas Street. However, they are seeking the assistance of the public in tracing his last movements.

Detective sergeant Nicola Phillips, the officer in charge of the enquiry, said:

“The man was last seen on CCTV leaving the station around 11.35pm on Friday 4 January and it is not entirely clear how he came to be on the tracks. I am therefore appealing for anyone who has any information which can help us piece together his movements between Friday night, and when his body was discovered, to contact BTP as a matter of urgency.”
