A man has been arrested over the death of a young father in a disturbance last week.

John McFarlane, 28, died in hospital shortly after being found with serious injuries last Thursday night.

He was taken to Glasgow Royal Infirmary where he died a short time later and police launched a murder inquiry.

A 29-year-old man has now been arrested and detained in custody in connection with the death.

A report is to be sent to the procurator fiscal and the man is due to appear at Glasgow Sheriff Court tomorrow.
