Police investigating the murder of a man in Clydebank have said they are reviewing CCTV images and assessing information from door-to-door inquires.

John McCallum, 49, was found seriously injured at his home in Meldrum Street, in the Whitecrook area, at about 21:30 on 18 December. He died two days later.

Police launched a murder inquiry after a post-mortem examination.

Detectives have appealed for people in the West Dunbartonshire town, who may have information, to contact them.

Det Insp George McAllister, of Police Scotland's major investigations teams, said: "A team of experienced detectives are assessing information which has been gathered from the door-to-door inquiries, however, I would like to ask the local community to get in touch with us.

"Whilst the feedback has been encouraging and there have been several sightings of Mr McCallum on Thursday 18 December, there are still many people who have yet to speak to us and I would like to appeal to them direct to get in touch.

"Even if they think the information they have is not important, please let us make that decision, the information could be significant as part of the ongoing investigation and help us find whoever is responsible for Mr McCallum's death."

Mr McCallum died in Glasgow's Western Infirmary on 20 December.

Police said they were in close contact with his family, who were "devastated by the loss" and "trying to come to terms" with what had happened.
