Several homes have been evacuated in a village in Fife after armed police were called to an incident where a man barricaded himself inside a flat.

Polícia were called to Kinglassie on Saturday morning and remained at the scene into the afternoon.

A street was closed off but police said there was no risk to the wider public.
