A watchdog is to investigate the response of police officers following the death of a 32-year-old man in Glasgow.

It follows the discovery of Steven Nichol's body in the city's Scaraway Street on March 8.

The Police Investigations & Review Commissioner (Pirc) will carry out the investigation into Police Scotland's response to a telephone call it received from a man earlier in the day.

A Pirc spokesman said: ''The Crown Office and Procurator Fiscal Service (COPFS) has instructed the Police Investigations & Review Commissioner (Pirc) to undertake an investigation following the death of Steven Nichol, 32, in Scaraway Street, Glasgow, on Wednesday March 8.

''The investigation will consider the response by Police Scotland to a telephone call made by the man earlier that day.

''A report on the commissioner's findings will be submitted to the COPFS in due course.''
