CCTV is to be installed at Aberdeen's derelict Broadford Works after a spate of fires, the city council has said.

Crews tackled four separate blazes in the disused factory on Thursday alone.

Aberdeen City Council said it would install cameras following the fires at the former Richards textile mill, off Hutcheon Street.

A spokesman said: "The building is surrounded by homes, businesses and busy roads so the consequences could have been devastating."
