Renfrewshire Council's director of children's services Steven Quinn earlier paid tribute to him, describing him as having a "big, loving heart".

He said: "First of all, it is with great sorrow I speak to you this afternoon to let you know that one of Renfrewshire’s children Kayden Frank, aged four, has very sadly died.

“Kayden was known to social work and also attended Douglas Street nursery and has been described by his head of centre as a lovely boy, endowed with an amazing sense of humour, always smiling, singing and dancing. He was the best at giving cuddles with a big, loving heart. He also loved jumping in puddles at the forest kindergarten and baking scones.

“Our thoughts and our prayers are with Kayden’s family at this time and we will continue to support police with their enquiries.”

“We are providing his family with specialist support at this incredibly difficult time and officers are continuing enquiries to try and get some answers for them.

“Kayden’s family have requested that their privacy is respected at this time.”
