A 21-year-old man was arrested in connection with the death and appeared at Hamilton Sheriff Court on Monday.

Declan Blythe faced charges including murder, assault to severe injury and attempting to defeat the ends of justice and was remanded in custody ahead of a further court appearance expected next week.

On Tuesday, a 34-year-old man also appeared before the court having been arrested in connection with an assault.

A report will be submitted to the procurator fiscal.

Officers are continuing to appeal for information surrounding the death.

Detective Inspector Cammy Miller said: “Extensive inquiries are being carried out to gather as much information about what happened, with detectives examining CCTV and speaking to local residents.

“Despite the early hour, it was daylight and from CCTV we can see that there were a number of members of the public in the area walking dogs and going about their daily business.

“It is vital that these people come forward and speak to the police, regardless of whether they think they have information or not.

“I would appeal to anyone who was in the vicinity of Quarry Street from around 4.30am to 5.15am, and heard or saw any sort of disturbance, to get in touch.

“Anyone with information is asked to contact Wishaw CID via 101, quoting incident number 0978 of Sunday 19 May 2019.

“Alternatively you can call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 where details can be given in confidence.”
