Police investigating the murder of a man whose body was found in the River Leven are to stop and question people in his home town of Renton.

The body of Michael Herbison, 35, was recovered near the West Dunbartonshire town's Dalquhurn Estate on 30 August.

Detectives and uniformed officers will stop and speak to people there and at the town's Scotmid store in Main Street between 21:00 and 23:00 on Monday.

The operation aims to establish Mr Herbison's last movements.

'Jog memories'

Inquiries have revealed that Mr Herbison was in the Scotmid store at about 21:20 on 29 August.

Det Insp Mark Stewart said: "Extensive inquiries have been ongoing throughout the past week and we are still trying to establish Mr Herbison's movements prior to his death and a motive for this crime.

"We hope that by speaking to people this evening, we can jog their memories as they may, without realising it, have seen something which is of interest to us.

"An incident caravan has been situated at the scene and I would encourage members of the public to visit the caravan and speak to officers."
