Man held after 'firearms incident' in Falkirk

A 37-year-old man has been arrested following what police are describing as a "firearms incident" in Falkirk.

Officers - some of them armed - were called to a property in Ash Grove in the West Quarter area, after reports a man had barricaded himself in a house.

A number of properties nearby were evacuated during the incident, and an ambulance crew stood by.

It is not believed anyone was hurt and a report is being sent to the procurator fiscal.
