A man has died in Glasgow this morning after becoming unwell during an Orange walk in the city.

Emergency services raced to George Square around 10.50am on Saturday after initially being alerted to the man’s condition at Kingston Street.

A Orange Walk – one of over 30 taking place across Glasgow today – was passing through the area at the time.

It is not known whether or not the man who took ill was participating.

There are no suspicious circumstances surrounding his death.

Kingston Street is currently closed at its junction with West Street to allow emergency services to deal with the incident.

The road closure has also been extended to Paisley Road.

Police initially were called to Kingston Street but then attended at George Square when the man was moved there.

A Police Scotland spokesperson said: “Around 10.50am this morning, a man became unwell while in George Square.

“An ambulance attended however sadly the man was pronounced dead a short time later.

“The death is not being treated as suspicious and a report will be sent to the PF.”

As reported by Glasgow Live, Glasgow City Council’s traffic management team (TRAFFCOM) released a statement on the road closures.

It reads: “Kingston Street is currently closed to all traffic at its junction with West Street due to an ongoing police incident. Road users should consider alternate routes if possible.”
