Body of man and 'unknown substances' found in Portsoy

The body of a 36-year-old man has been found at a property in an Aberdeenshire village.

Police said "unknown substances" were also found at the address in Portsoy, but they were of no risk to the public.

Emergency services were called to the residential property in Soy Avenue at about 23:00 on Sunday.

Specialist teams from the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service and the Scottish Ambulance Service also attended.

The death of the man is being treated as unexplained, but there are not thought to be any suspicious circumstances.

A report will be sent to the procurator fiscal, as is the case with all sudden deaths.
