Three people have been rescued after a large fire broke out at a flat in Aberdeen.

The fire was eventually brought under control at about 18:30 with 18 firefighters and four appliances in attendance.
A spokeswoman for the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service said: "We had four appliances there and there were three rescues made.
"It was a well-established fire when we got there. It was extinguished with one jet, two hose reel jets and 12 breathing apparatus."
