Three people who plunged to their deaths from a multi-storey flat in Glasgow were a Russian family seeking asylum in the UK, the BBC reports. The father, mother and son had been granted asylum in Canada but left after a dispute with the authorities there.The apparent triple suicide happened on Sunday at the Red Road flats complex in the city’s Springburn area. A source familiar with the case said the family had been told that they had to leave their flat in Springburn after their application to stay was refused. No removal order had been issued, however, and they were advised to seek help from the Scottish Refugee Council to find alternative accommodation. The bodies were discovered by the concierge at the tower block after they had fallen from the 15th floor.
