Woman dies after being taken to hospital as police treat death as 'unexplained'

A WOMAN who became unwell in a Glasgow street tragically died after being taken to hospital.

The 60-year-old passed away in the Glasgow Royal Infirmary on Friday.

We previously reported that Bisland Drive, in Maryhill, had been locked down and that a woman had been rushed to hospital.

Police have since revealed she died a short time later. Officers are treating the woman's death as unexplained, but say there do not appear to be any suspicious circumstances at this stage.

Emergency services were called to the scene shortly after 9am.

A section of the road was closed to traffic as officers guarded the area.
