Police investigating the murder of a man in West Dunbartonshire have said the public response to an appeal for information has been "very good".

Scott Adams died after an incident near the Village Tavern, Duntocher, Clydebank at about 0150 BST on Sunday.

The 20-year-old, from Parkhall, was found with serious injuries outside the pub. He died a short time later in Glasgow's Western Infirmary.

Police believe he was involved in an altercation with another man.

The suspect is described as a white male, of stocky build with bushy eyebrows who was wearing blue jeans.

Further inquiries

Det Insp Michael Lappin, of Strathclyde Police, said: "So far the response from the public has been very good and information being passed on is enabling us to conduct further inquires in an attempt to trace the person responsible for Scott's death.

"Inquiries have now revealed that Scott had been within the Duntiglennan Pub in Dumbarton Road between 2300 hrs on Saturday 17 July until 0100 on Sunday 18 July.

"We also believe he may have been drinking in other local pubs earlier in the evening and became involved in an altercation with a man in nearby Morrison Street at Davis Square just prior to 0150 hrs on Sunday 18 July 2010."

Anyone with information was asked to contact Clydebank Police Office.
