ARMED police in the Forth Valley have resolved an incident following reports of a lone knifeman.

Just before 9am police raced to Falkirk Grahamston station after concerned members of the public reported a man holding a knife to his throat.

The station is still currently closed as ScotRail try to reinstate services to and from the station.

No one was injured and the 21-year-old has been taken to hospital.

Officers have confirmed to rail and local transport services that they can now resume normal business.

Chief Inspector Damian Armstrong, Local Area Commander for Falkirk, said: "The safety of the public and our officers, as well as the man, was at the forefront of our response.

"We thank the public for their cooperation as local and specialist officers worked to bring this to a safe and peaceful conclusion.

"I want to reassure people that this is being treated as an isolated incident and there is no ongoing risk to the local community."

Scotrail said in a statement: The police have dealt with the incident and have now cleared the station. Arrangements are now being made to reinstate services, but delays and cancellations may still be experienced."
