Two people are in hospital after a serious assault in Troon.

Police say a 49-year-old woman and 56-year-old man are being treated and are in a stable condition.

It follows an incident on Saturday night when cops were called to a property in the town's North Shore Road at around 8.35pm following reports of an assault.

Both the man and woman were found with serious injuries and were taken to hospital, where they remain.
