Ford Kiernan's son found dead

Police inquiry over unexplained death of 12-year-old

Police have launched an investigation after Ford Kiernan's 12-year-old son was found dead at the family home in Glasgow.

Police Scotland received a report of the Sonny's death at the property in the West End of the city at about 11.30pm last night.

A spokeswoman said: 'The death is currently being treated as unexplained and inquiries are continuing.' A post mortem will be carried out later.

The boy lived with Kiernan, 51, his wife Lesley and their elder child.

Kiernan and his comedy partner Greg Hemphill are due to revive their hit sitcom Still Game for a run of live shows at The SSE Hydro in Glasgow this autumn.
