A former hotel in Aberdeenshire badly damaged by fire is set to be demolished.

About 70 firefighters tackled the blaze at the Highland Haven in Macduff's Shore Street on Saturday night.

An Aberdeenshire Council spokesman said: "It is recommended that the badly damaged front block of the hotel will require full demolition and the rear block partial demolition.

"This will secure the structure in the interests of public safety."
