Arrest After Paisley Controlled Explosion

A man has been arrested after police carried out a controlled explosion in Paisley.

An Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) team were called to Well Street at around 8.50pm on Friday after a report of an explosion.

A Police Scotland spokeswoman said: "No one was injured and the EOD later carried out a controlled explosion.''

A 35-year-old man has been arrested and detained and is expected to appear at Paisley Sheriff Court on Monday.

Police said there was nothing to suggest the incident was terror-related and earlier reports suggest it was to do with a firework device.
