Firefighters have tackled a spate of deliberate fires at Aberdeen's derelict Broadford Works.

Crews tackled three separate blazes in the disused factory at lunchtime. They were then alerted to another blaze in a lift shaft at about 15:30.

It follows a fire earlier this week.

In December, fresh plans were submitted to redevelop Broadford Works. The former Richards textile mill, off Hutcheon Street, has more than 100 buildings, many A-listed.
