A police probe has been launched following the sudden death of a woman in Grangemouth.

Officers from Police Scotland were called to an address on Kingseat Avenue at around 4.40pm on Friday, July 3. 

Local reports suggested armed police were also scrambled to the scene around the time the heartbreaking discovery was made.

Cops confirmed the body of a 28-year-old was found within the house and she was pronounced dead a short time later.

Investigators do not believe her death is suspicious but enquiries remain ongoing to determine the circumstances surrounding her tragic passing.

A statement issued last night stressed that there was no threat to the wider public.
