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.

Mr McFarlane, of Auchirnairn Road, Bishopbriggs, East Dunbartonshire, was found in the town’s Springfield Road at around 10.35pm.

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.
