Two 14-year-old boys have been charged following separate fires in Aberdeen, police have said.

One was traced after a serious blaze broke out at the former Balgownie College, at Hutcheon Gardens in the Bridge of Don area, on Tuesday evening.

About 20 firefighters were called out and the building was badly damaged.

Grampian Police said the same youth and another 14-year-old had been charged after a fire at the disused One Sport premises on Balgownie Way in February.
