LONDON, May 2 (Reuters) - Energy firm Ineos said an incident had occurred at its Grangemouth refinery on Tuesday, with emergency services heading to the scene and a local lawmaker advising members of the public to stay indoors.

"INEOS can confirm that an incident has occurred at its Grangemouth site," INEOS Grangemouth said in a tweet.

Scottish parliament lawmaker Angus MacDonald said that members of the public should stay indoors.

Scotland's Fire and Rescue Service said eight fire engines had been sent to the scene but it had no information regarding the cause of the incident, though local media reports said it was to do with a gas leak. (Reporting by Alistair Smout; editing by Guy Faulconbridge)
