A 12-year-old girl has died after getting into difficulty in the River Leven.

Police said the girl's body was recovered by the emergency services at around 9.45pm on Sunday, three hours after they received a report of a young person being in difficulty near Balloch Bridge.

Earlier, West Dunbartonshire Police, Scottish Fire and Rescue Service and the Maritime and Coastguard Agency all confirmed they were involved in the search and asked the public to avoid the area.

The child's family have been informed of her death and enquiries are ongoing, but police are not treating the death as suspicious.

A full report will be sent to the procurator fiscal.
