British Transport Police are investigating after a railway worker was shot with an air rifle in High Bonnybridge.

The 48-year-old was struck in the leg while working in the Greenhill area at about 08:00 on Sunday. He attended Glasgow Royal Infirmary for treatment.

A search of the immediate area was carried out, with door-to-door inquiries taking place at nearby houses on Broomhill Road.

DC Andrew Egan, of the British Transport Police, said: "This was a completely random attack on someone at their work.

"Anyone who has information regarding who was responsible should contact BTP as a matter of urgency."
