'Ferocious' fire hits fish store

Six fire crews took several hours to get a "ferocious" blaze at a fishing industry warehouse under control.

An investigation has been launched into the cause of the fire at Scotia Boxes, which is on Port Henry Pier in Peterhead, on Saturday afternoon.

A "substantial" number of fish boxes and some vehicles were damaged at Scotia and neighbouring premises were also affected.

Early estimates suggest the damage could amount to a six figure sum.
