A fire which destroyed an Aberdeen garage is being treated by police as "unexplained".

About 45 firefighters were involved in tackling the blaze at Gordon's Garage in Pittodrie Place at 03:50.

Insp Christine Gordon said: "This was a substantial fire which has caused extensive damage to the premises itself and the vehicles within."

She said the estimated value of the damage was likely to amount to "a six figure sum of money".

Insp Gordon said officers were carrying out door-to-door inquiries in the area.

She appealed for anyone who saw anything suspicious in the early hours of Sunday morning to come forward.
