Three people who fell to their deaths from a Glasgow tower block were a Russian man, his wife and their son..

 Strathclyde police say the deaths are not being treated as suspicious

The bodies of two men and a woman were found at the bottom of a 31-storey block in Petershill Drive, Springburn, Glasgow, at 8.45am on Sunday.

Their deaths are not being treated as suspicious.

It is believed they fell from the 15th floor of Block 63 at the Red Road flat complex, which were at one time the highest flats in Europe.

Many of the flats – which are earmarked for demolition – are occupied by asylum seekers and refugees.

In recent years, some of the flats have housed people from Kosovo, Africa, Asia, the former Soviet Union, Iran and Iraq.

A 51-year-old neighbour said the family had lived in the flats for two months but she did not know them.

This is a terrible tragedy and the thoughts of myself and the community are with the families of those who died in this tragic event.

A Strathclyde Police spokesman said: “Inquiries are ongoing to establish the identities of the three people involved.

“Post-mortem examinations will take place in due course to establish the exact cause of death. However, at this time there does not appear to be any suspicious circumstances.”

Glasgow Springburn Labour MSP Paul Martin said: “This is a terrible tragedy and the thoughts of myself and the community are with the families of those who died.
