More than 40 firefighters have been tackling a blaze at a house in Aberdeenshire.

Grampian Fire and Rescue Service said the operation, in Memsie near Fraserburgh, had been hampered by a lack of water in the area.

Supplies were being transported from a source half-a-mile away from the building, which was totally destroyed.

Nobody was hurt in the fire, the cause of which has yet to be established.

A fire service spokesperson said crews were expected to be there until the afternoon.
