A large area around the venue inside Calderglen Country Park in the city of Lanarkshire was taped this morning with officers and forensic teams at the scene.

Police have confirmed that a 58-year-old man was found dead in a car park and say the tragedy is being treated as “unexplained”.

A local man who attended last night’s event at the club told how the fun-loving people were asked to leave after the police arrived and closed the party.

The person, who asked not to be named, said: “There was a function last night and suddenly the police came and took us all in around 11am.

“We had no idea what had happened but we were all pulled out from behind and we all jumped in taxis and went home.

“When I was driving my family home I heard people talk about something happening in the car park, but I’m not sure what really happened.

“It’s obviously very serious and for forensics to be outside you know it’s not good.

“I came downstairs this morning to pick up my car because it’s still inside the hoop.”

A post on East Kilbride Sports Club’s Facebook page read: “The club and grounds will remain closed until further notice due to a police incident.”

A blue tent was still visible inside the car park, with officials guarding around the club which is home to the city’s cricket team.

Another small area outside K-Park, which was home to Lowland League outfit East Kilbride FC, was also closed as the investigation into the tragedy continued.

A Police Scotland spokesman said: “We were made aware of a 58-year-old man who collapsed in a car park in Strathven Road, East Kilbride, at approximately 10.10 a.m. on Saturday, 30 July 2022.
