Staff at a factory which employs disabled workers in Aberdeen have been told they will end production on Thursday, BBC Scotland has learned.

Remploy in St Machar Road employs 15 workers, 14 of whom are disabled.

A case to develop a social enterprise hub in its place was rejected and Remploy is expected to close next week.

The workers will spend the remaining days clearing up the premises. It is understood the building will then be put up for sale.

Remploy earlier said it was planning to close 36 of its 54 factories.
