A man has been arrested on suspicion of an alleged attempted murder following an incident at a train station.

Transport cops were called to Garrowhill station at around 7.30pm on Sunday evening in response to two casualties on the train tracks. 

A 26-year-old man and a two-year-old boy were rushed to hospital where they are both being treated after being hit by a train.
