Man Found Dead Under Glasgow Canal Bridge Named

A man whose body was found under a canal bridge has been named by police.

Craig Allison was found dead on Sunday morning by a member of the public at an area known locally as the "Slushie'' at the River Kelvin in the Maryhill area of Glasgow.

His death is being treated as unexplained at this time but a post-mortem examination will take place in due course to establish the exact cause, Police Scotland said.

The 22-year-old, from Ruchill, had been fishing in the area the previous day and officers are appealing for information from anyone who might have seen him.

Detective Inspector Jim Bradley said: "We know that he had gone fishing on Saturday afternoon with friends who we have since spoken to.

"However, his friends left him there late Saturday night, early Sunday morning.

"At this time we do not know what happened to Craig and until that is established, I would appeal to anyone who saw him in the area to get in touch.

"Craig, who is white, has light brown hair and was wearing a grey t-shirt with a white collar and white trim on the sleeve, grey jogging bottoms and blue and white Adidas trainers.

"The area where he was found is quite a popular spot for fishing and the canal path is used by joggers, cyclists, dog walkers and the like, so if you recognise his description or have any information that will help our enquiry then please contact police.''
