Two people have been rescued from a burning fishing boat in Peterhead harbour.

About 25 firefighters were involved in tackling the flames aboard the Tranquility. No-one was injured.

A search was launched by Peterhead's lifeboat at about 22:30 on Thursday, to look for potential casualties in the water.

One man was rescued from the harbour but he was not believed to have been aboard the fishing vessel.

The cause of the fire will be investigated.
