A man has been arrested after a bodybuilder who recently won the Mr Scotland title was fatally stabbed on an industrial estate in North Ayrshire.

Michael "Musk" O'Hanlon, 45, was discovered injured at the Moorpark industrial estate in Stevenston at about midday on Monday (25 July). Attempts by paramedics to revive him failed and he died at the scene.

Police Scotland said on Tuesday it had detained a 43-year-old man in connection with the death. He is due to appear at Kilmarnock Sheriff Court later in the day.

O'Hanlon, from Irvine, won the National Amateur Body-Builders' Association (NABBA) Mr Scotland title in March. He first won the title 23 years ago.

NABBA said on its website he had won the "Class 2" contest before being declared overall winner.

O'Hanlon ran the Musclebox bodybuilders and supplements shop in Glasgow with his fiancee Eileen Kirkwood.

He had spent time in jail for a 2014 drug0dealing conviction after police found more than 1,200 muscle-relaxant diazepam tablets and £3,000 (€3,500) cash at his home, according to the Irvine Times.

He denied selling the class C drug and claimed he had bought the pills in bulk after taking them to help him sleep and counteract gym supplements.

Soon after his body was found, a Police Scotland spokeswoman said: "Police and emergency services responded to a report of a 45-year-old man having being injured in the Moorpark industrial estate in Stevenston.

"The man was pronounced dead at the scene by ambulance staff. A postmortem examination will take place to establish the cause of death, which is being treated as suspicious.

"Inquiries are at an early stage, however detectives are following a positive line of enquiry."
