A manhunt has been launched after a 31-year-old man was stabbed on a Paisley street and later died.

Detectives from Police Scotland's Major Investigations squad are at the scene following last night's attack in the Foxbar area of the town.

Police received a report that a man had been stabbed on Tweed Avenue at around 11.20pm.

The injured man was taken to the Royal Alexandra Hospital but later died.

A post mortem examination will take place today to establish the exact cause of death, which officers are treating as suspicious.

Extensive enquiries are underway, with officers examining CCTV footage as well as carrying out door to door enquiries.

Detective Superintendent Allan Burton from Police Scotland’s Major Investigation Teams said: “A man has died following a violent attack which took place in the middle of the street and it is absolutely imperative that we trace the despicable individual responsible.

“I would appeal to anyone who was in Tweed Avenue, or the surrounding area, between 11.30PM and 12.30am last night to please come forward.

"No matter whether you think you have any significant information, let our officers determine that, as you may be able to assist with the investigation.

“Anyone with information is asked to contact officers at Police Scotland’s Major Investigation Teams via 101 and quote incident number 4537/23. Alternatively you can call CRIMESTOPPERS on 0800 555 111 where details can be given in confidence.”
