Detectives have launched a murder inquiry after the death of a man whose body was found at a flat.
Allan Montgomery, 56, was found dead in his home in Parnie Street in the Saltmarket area of Glasgow at about 8.20am on Tuesday.

"Officers are currently studying CCTV footage in the area of Parnie Street to gather more information that may assist this investigation and confirm if an assault has taken place."
