A 26-year-old man has been arrested and charged in connection with the death and is due to appear at Paisley Sheriff Court on Monday.

Detective Inspector Nicky Beattie, of Paisley CID, said: “Our thoughts are very much with Andrew’s family and we are providing them with support at what is a very difficult time for them. They have asked for their privacy to be respected.”
