A second man has been arrested in connection with the death of a man at a park in South Lanarkshire.

The 27-year-old is being held in police custody following the death of Jason McCue, 43, in John Hastie Park, Strathaven, on Tuesday.

Paramedics treated Mr McCue at the scene but he died of his injuries.

The move follows the arrest of a 50-year-old man who was detained by police on Thursday.

A spokesman for Police Scotland said: "A 27-year-old man has been arrested and is presently detained in police custody in connection with the death.

"A report will be submitted to the procurator fiscal.''
