Emergency services were called out to the Fordell Estate area last night after a 17-year-old was left injured. 

Locals reported seeing drunken teenagers after schools broke up for the Easter holidays yesterday (Thursday).

Clockluine Road was blocked off and traffic was diverted while police and ambulance staff attended the injured male who had fallen. He was then taken to Victoria Hospital. 

Police have warned that they will be increasing patrols throughout West Fife during the school holidays in a bid to combat underage drinking. 

Sergeant Kenny Bow from Inverkeithing Police Station said: "We received a call at around 10 pm on Thursday 4th April in relation to a number of youths drinking in the Fordell Estate area, near to the Hillend Cemetery.

"During this time, a 17-year-old male fell and sustained an injury, requiring him to be taken to the Victoria Hospital in Kirkcaldy.

"I want to take this opportunity to remind young members of our communities and those responsible for their care, of the risks associated with underage drinking.

"During the Easter Break, we will have high-visibility patrols throughout the area to deter underage drinking and associated antisocial behaviour. We'd urge the public to help us with our efforts to keep young people safe."
