The Falkirk Herald understands up to 70 youths piled into the house in MacGregor Place on Friday night after news of the ‘free house’ spread on social media.

The party got out of hand and police were called at around 10pm to find “extensive damage” had been done to the property’s interior, including holes being punched in a child’s bedroom door.

Police also remained in the area for the rest of the night to ensure no more trouble broke out.
