Police have concluded their search of a former funeral parlour in Balornock Road, Glasgow.

Between Friday, 3 May, 2024 and Tuesday, 14 May, 2024, officers, including specialist search teams, carried out a detailed examination of the premises as part of an ongoing investigation into the storage and return of cremated remains and allegations of financial misconduct.

Enquiries are ongoing to establish any criminality.

Detective Inspector Gerry Shovlin, Clydebank CID, said: "This is a very sensitive and emotive case and we recognise the upset and distress that families have experienced.

"Our investigation has been going on for several weeks now and will continue for some time, due to the level of enquiry that will need to be followed up.

"It is a complex inquiry that involves a number of agencies, but families can be reassured that the ashes of their loved ones are a priority and will be treated with the utmost respect."
