A £500,000 marine training academy is being set up at Stonehaven harbour.

Survival Craft Inspectorate (SCI) is behind the development at the site of the former Maritime Rescue Institute (MRI).

The MRI announced in February it was being forced to close its doors after failing to recover from storm damage.

The SCI Marine Training Academy is expected to host about 5,000 students annually, on marine and safety-related issues.

Six jobs are to be created initially.

Managing director Angus Campbell said: "We're delighted to announce this expansion of our services to support the marine and offshore industries.

"The academy will represent a quality new training resource for students, coxswains and offshore personnel."
