A 12-year-old boy is critically ill after an accident involving overhead railway power lines in Glasgow.
British Transport Police were called to the tracks close to Ashgill Road, Milton, after the alarm was raised at about 18:30 on Sunday.
The schoolboy was taken to the Royal Hospital for Children, where he is receiving treatment for life-threatening injuries.
Det Insp Brian McAleese described it as "a catastrophic incident".
"His condition is believed to be life threatening and we have specially trained officers supporting his family during this incredibly difficult time," he said.
The officer said inquiries were under way to establish the full circumstances of events which led to the boy coming into contact with the overhead power lines.
"While we have no reason to suspect there are any suspicious circumstances, we would ask anyone who witnessed what happened to get in touch," he added.
Officers will be conducting a number of additional patrols in the local area over the coming days to help reassure the community.
