The attack occurred during one of the biggest weeks of the year in Kirkcaldy, with the Promenade hosting the annual Links market.

At least 25,000 people were expected to flood the mile-long market yesterday as the fair coincided with a burst of unseasonably warm April weather.

A force spokesman said: “Police in Fife have arrested a 35-year-old man and a 35-year-old woman in connection with the attempted murder of a 48-year-old man in the Miller Street area of Kirkcaldy, which took place at around 4pm on Saturday.

“It resulted in a large police presence in the area. Enquiries are continuing.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact police on 101.
