TWO Glasgow babies have been found dead in the city on the same day – prompting police investigations.

The force confirmed that they were now investigating a second unexplained baby death in the Dennistoun area of Glasgow amid concerns it had been there for weeks.

It comes after Kevin Smith, 32, spoke of the "sudden death" of his six-month-old baby daughter Blake in Castlemilk, Glasgow.

The alarm was raised at a flat in Ark Lane on Monday afternoon and the cause of death of the baby is unknown and is being treated as unexplained.

They provided no further details over the age or sex of the baby.

Two policemen had been seen keeping guard outside an opened cupboard by the flat’s front door.


A post mortem examination is expected to take place in due course.

A Police Scotland spokeswoman said: “Enquiries are ongoing into the death of a baby at a flat in Ark Lane, Glasgow.

“Police were called to the address at around 2.45pm on Monday August 6.

“A post mortem examination will be carried out in due course to establish the exact cause of death, which officers are treating as unexplained at this time.”

Dennistoun councillor Allan Casey said: “I am deeply sorry to hear this has happened and my thoughts go out to everyone involved.”

The latest probe comes after a baby Blake died earlier this week. It is understood Blake was found by mum Megan Thompson, 20, in Castlemilk, Glasgow, on Monday.

The force confirmed their investigation into into that death continues.

Paramedics raced the little girl from her home to the Royal Hospital for Sick Kids in Glasgow but doctors could not save her.

Mr Smith said: “I just can’t believe my wee baby has been taken so soon. It was a sudden death. It’s a case of waiting on the post mortem.”
