Detectives are hunting for a man after a sexual assault on a teenager in Bo'ness on Wednesday night.

Central Scotland Police said a 15-year-old girl was attacked on Carriden Brae just after midnight as she walked home.

The road has been closed between Carriden Parish Church and the junction with West Lodge House while detectives carry out investigations.

Police said they were keen to trace a man wearing dark clothing who may have been spotted in the area.

Det Insp Dougie Anderson, of Falkirk CID, said: "We are appealing for anyone who may have seen the girl in the area to come forward.

"We are also keen to trace a man who we believe may be responsible for the assault.

"He is described as being 5'5" tall, of slim build and was wearing a black polo-neck style top and dark trouser bottoms. "
