A MAN has been arrested and charged over the alleged murder of a Greenock man and is due in court today. 

Police say a 27-year-old man has been taken into custody and charged with the murder of Adam Anderson.

Mr Anderson was discovered in a car park off Ann Street, Greenock, at around 3.50pm on January 2.

The 22-year-old was taken to Inverclyde Royal Hospital but died a short time later.

Police released the information about the incident, but later confirmed they were treating the disturbance as a murder case after a post-mortem examination was carried out.

Now, the accused is expected to appear at Greenock Sheriff court today.

Detective Chief Inspector Stuart Grainger said: “Our thoughts remain with Adam’s family and friends at this terrible time.

“We would also like to thank the public for their assistance with our investigation.”
