Human remains have been discovered in a park in Glenrothes.

Police said it is not possible to tell if the body is male or female and a full forensic examination is being carried out after the discovery in Riverside Park at around 4pm on Tuesday.

Officers have contacted the families of "a number" of missing men from the area to make them aware of the discovery.

Chief Inspector Stevie Hamilton said: "Whilst the investigation is still at an early stage we have made contact with the next of kin of a number of local missing men from the Glenrothes area to make them aware of this discovery.

"A detailed forensic examination will be required and this will take some time to complete."
