Armed police are on duty inside the count centre for the Falkirk constituency as Britain remains on terror alert.

The officers are inside Grangemouth Sports Complex where the counting of votes is currently underway.

Although police are always on duty during the vote counting process it is believed to be the first time armed colleagues have been deployed.

Across the country votes are being counted to elect MPs to 650 seats at Westminster.
