A 62-year-old man has died after he was hit by a bus as he stood at a bus stop in the south side of Glasgow.

James Lochrie, from Castlemilk, was standing at the shelter on Cathcart Road at about 08:00 when he was hit by the bus which left the road.

Emergency services attended but the man died at the scene. The 44-year-old driver of the bus was uninjured.

Another 44-year-old man has died after his car hit a tree on the A71 near Bonkle in North Lanarkshire.

John Murdoch, of Wishaw, was driving a blue or black Mercedes west on the A71, near the Bonkle cut off, at about 09:40 when he appeared to lose control of the car which left the road and hit the tree.

Police have appealed for witnesses to both incidents.

The Cathcart Road accident happened near the junction with Butterbiggins Road.

Part of the road was closed for a number of hours.
