A parcel that led to the evacuation of the Falkirk Stadium on Saturday turned out to be a box of chocolates.

The ground was cleared soon after Falkirk's 3-1 victory over Queen of the South due to the discovery of an unattended package.

The forgotten chocolates were in a bag, wrapped in gift paper.

"A police expert attended the Falkirk Stadium and the package was declared safe," read a statement from the Championship club.
