A 41-year-old man has died two days after he and another man were attacked in Camelon, near Falkirk.

Steven Snow was found critically injured in the town's Glenfuir Road on Tuesday.

He was taken to Stirling Royal Infirmary but police said he succumbed to his injuries on Thursday morning.

Barry Wilson, 28, from Bainsford, appeared at Falkirk Sheriff Court on Wednesday in connection with the incident.

Mr Wilson made no plea or declaration and was remanded in custody.

He is accused of attacking Mr Snow and another man near the Beefeater restaurant.

Detectives have appealed for information about two men who were seen acting suspiciously near the Copper Top pub shortly before the attack.

Roads in the Camelon area were shut for six hours following Tuesday's incident.

Det Insp Hugh Louden, of Falkirk CID, said: "We appeal for anyone who saw a disturbance near the Beefeater restaurant to contact us.

"We also appeal for anyone who was in the area of the Copper Top and who saw two men acting suspiciously near cars parked outside to come forward."
