A man has been seriously hurt in a knife attack in Renfrewshire.

The 33-year-old was found in Graham Street, Johnstone, with injuries to his head and face on Friday.

Queen Elizabeth University Hospital where his condition is described as serious.

Police Scotland have appealed for witnesses to the assault which happened at around 5.15pm.
