Man in custody after protest on Fraserburgh Academy roof

A man has been taken into custody after a protest on the roof of Fraserburgh Academy in Aberdeenshire.

The man - carrying a banner making claims about his benefit payments - spent about six hours on top of the building.

He was believed to have scaled the two storey building early on Wednesday.

The school remained opened to pupils as normal during the day as Aberdeenshire Council monitored the situation.
