Two teenage girls leapt more than 100ft to their deaths at a notorious suicide spot, it was revealed today.

The pair, aged 14 and 15, jumped together from the Erskine Bridge, near Glasgow, last night.

They were reportedly holding hands as they plunged into the River Clyde.

A Strathclyde Police spokesman said: "We can confirm the death of two girls, aged 14 and 15 years, at the Erskine Bridge on Sunday.

"Inquiries are continuing; however, there would appear to be no suspicious circumstances surrounding the deaths. A report will be prepared for the procurator fiscal."
