A dual carriageway had to be closed for four hours after a major fire broke out at an Aberdeenshire roofing company.

About 40 firefighters tackled the blaze at Stevenson and Kelly, near Potterton, which started at about 20:20 on Thursday and caused extensive damage.

The A90 between Aberdeen and Balmedie was closed due to smoke billowing across the road.

No-one was injured in the fire which is not being treated as suspicious.

Group manager with Grampian Fire and Rescue Service, Ally Birkett, said it was a very serious incident.
