Detective Chief Inspector Jim Thomson, of Forth Valley CID, said: “Our thoughts and sympathies are with the families of Peter and Paul, as well as those affected by this tragic incident, at this very difficult time.

“A multi-agency investigation is under way to establish exactly what happened and provide both men’s loved ones, and their workmates, with the answers they require.”
