A street in Kirkcaldy has been sealed off by police after a man was found injured.
An investigation is under way on Veronica Crescent, after officers descended on the scene at around 9am on Monday.
Detectives were seen going door-to-door questioning residents on the street.

She said: “We were called around 9am on Monday to a report of a man found injured in the Veronica Crescent area of Kirkcaldy.
“He has been taken to the Victoria Hospital for treatment.
