Police have launched a murder inquiry after a man was found dead in a busy residential street.

Officers were called to a disturbance in Paisley, Renfrewshire at 3.35pm on Saturday afternoon and found a dead 30-year-old man and a 37-year-old man with serious injuries.

Detectives are continuing inquiries and have appealed for information following the incident in the town's Argyle Street.

Police Scotland say a post-mortem examination has been carried out on the 30-year-old man and the death is being treated as murder.

The 37-year-old man remains in hospital where medical staff describe his condition as serious but stable.

Officers are carrying out door-to-door inquiries in the area and checking public and private CCTV.

Detective Inspector Grant MacLeod, who is leading the investigation, said: "The area in which this took place is very residential, therefore I would like to speak to anyone who lives nearby who may have witnessed the disturbance to come forward.

"A man has lost his life following a violent assault and it is a priority that we identify who is responsible.

"The time of the attack was during the afternoon on a weekend therefore there would have more people than usual in the area.

"This is understandably a real shock to the communities of Paisley, however I would like to reassure local residents that a team of detectives are working tirelessly on this investigation.

"There are additional officers in the area and I would ask anyone who has any concerns or information to approach those officers.

"Again, I would like to reiterate my appeal for information, please come forward if you have any information which might be able to assist us.'
