Equipment worth thousands of pounds has been stolen in a "sickening" theft from an RNLI office in Aberdeenshire.

The break-in happened between Wednesday evening and Thursday morning in Macduff.

Volunteer Roy Morrison said: "The crew are sickened that someone would go and break into a lifeboat station.

"To think that someone could steal from a charity where our guys go out to sea and risk their lives to save other people."

Grampian Police joined the RNLI in criticising the theft and appealed for information.
