Police say a disturbance in Dunfermline which left a woman seriously injured is being treated as attempted murder.

A 49-year-old man has been arrested and charged in connection with the alleged incident, which happened at a property in Leishman Drive on Wednesday morning.

Officers responded to reports of a disturbance at around 9am on Wednesday and a 42-year-old woman was taken to the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh for treatment.

Her injuries were described as being serious but not life threatening.

Leishman Drive was cordoned off by police as forensic officers examined the scene.
