A man who died in Britain's first ever case of Congo Fever will be laid to rest today.

38 year old Fazal Ahmad died in hospital on Saturday, 4 days after returning to Glasgow from a wedding in Afghanistan.

He was initially treated in isolation at Gartnavel General Hospital's Brownlee Centre in Glasgow, which specialises in infectious disease, before being flown from Scotland to a high-security infectious disease unit at London's Royal Free Hospital. 

His body is being flown back to Scotland and his funeral will take place at Glasgow Central Mosque at 2pm this afternoon.
