The names of two people who died in an early-morning car crash in Glasgow have been released.

They were 21-year-old Kieran Lundie, who was driving the car, and 24-year-old passenger Gemma McMonagle. Both were from Glasgow.

Another 25-year-old woman was critically injured and a 25-year-old man seriously injured.

Their Ford Focus crashed on Balmore Road at about 00:45 on Sunday and ended up in water beside Lambhill Cemetery.

Police said they do not believe any other vehicle was involved.

Sgt Nicola Taylor of Police Scotland said: "Our inquires are continuing into the circumstances surrounding this tragic incident.

"It would appear that no other vehicle was involved and I would like to speak to anyone who either witnessed this crash or anyone who remembers seeing the vehicle travelling in Balmore Road just prior to the crash."
