A second suspicious blaze has hit a West Lothian nightclub two months after the property was initially targeted.

Firefighters were called to the Grand Central in Livingston at 0513 GMT after a member of the public reported smoke coming from the two-storey building.

More than 30 firefighters tackled the blaze for two hours until they brought it under control.

Nobody was injured in the fire. Crime officers and a fire dog have been at the scene.

A Lothian and Borders Fire and Rescue Service spokeswoman said it had been a "large" fire.

It follows a suspicious fire at the club in the Carmondean area of the town on 11 January.

A Lothian and Borders Police spokesman said: "Police are investigating a suspicious fire that broke out at the Grand Central club in Carmondean Road, in the Deans area of Livingston, earlier.

"The fire broke out about 0500 GMT, and we are appealing to anyone who was in the area at the time, who noticed any suspicious activity, to contact police immediately.

"Anyone else with information that can assist our inquires should also get in touch."
