An Aberdeenshire fire station has been recognised for the fundraising of its crew members.

Ellon fire station was named station of the year at the annual Fire Fighters Charity 'Spirit of Fire' awards.

Station manager Ron Beedie said their efforts had raised more than £150,000 for the charity.

He said: "I am so proud. A huge thank you has to go to the local community, without their support and generosity we would never have reached our targets."
