Man's body found near Whitecraigs Golf Course

An investigation is under way after a man's body was found near a golf course in East Renfrewshire.

Strathclyde Police said the body, which has not yet been identified, was found close to Whitecraigs Golf Club, near Giffnock, at about 10:20 on Monday.

Forensic tests will be carried out to establish the man's identity.

Police would not confirm if the case was linked to the search for Charles Walker who has been missing from his home in nearby Thornliebank.

The 52-year-old was reported missing earlier this month about the time that a neighbour of his, Lynne Small, was found murdered in her home in Addison Grove.

Police said at the time that there was nothing to suggest the two incidents were linked.
