Fire control rooms in Aberdeen and Inverness are set to close early next year, it has been announced.

The Scottish Fire and Rescue Service (SFRS) is moving operations to a new North Control in Dundee.

Deputy assistant chief officer Andy Coueslant said the changes were due to come into effect by the first quarter of 2017.

The service said all testing, staff training and system integration would be completed first.

The plans were approved in 2014.
