A woman has appeared in court charged with murdering her 14-month daughter at a house in Glasgow.

Sadia Ahmed is accused of killing Inayah Ahmed at her home in the city's Drumchapel area on 17 April.

The 26-year-old is accused of "restricting her breathing by means presently unknown" and murdering her.

Ms Ahmed appeared in private at Glasgow Sheriff Court where she made no plea or declaration and was remanded in custody by Sheriff Linda Ruxton.

Ms Ahmed will appear for a full committal hearing next week.

Fourteen-month-old Inayah was reported to have become unwell at her home on 17 April.

She was taken by ambulance to the city's Royal Hospital for Sick Children where she died three days later.
