Forensic officers examining a farmhouse near Falkirk which burnt down in a fire last week have found what they believe to be human remains.

Farmer David Miller, 65, and his 75-year-old sister May have not been seen since the blaze broke out.

Officers said they had been conducting a thorough forensic search at Castlerankine Farm, near Denny, in difficult conditions, since Monday.

Efforts are now under way to identify the recovered remains.

Emergency services were called to the two-storey house at 0345 GMT on 9 December after a member of the public raised the alarm.

A Central Scotland Police spokeswoman said the fire was not believed to be suspicious.
