A man has been detained and taken to hospital with injuries which are not thought to be serious.

Footage shot by Steven Fletcher in the moments after the incident shows police officers hurriedly cordoning off the scene and urging those watching to ‘keep moving.’

One officer can be seen taping off the road while in another clip, officers can be seen tending to a man on the ground in amongst a number of police vehicles and sirens.

The road was closed while police dealt with the incident, which they say is not terrorism related.
