A major blaze at a disused Aberdeen hospital is being treated as "wilful".

Dozens of firefighters were called in to tackle the incident at Royal Cornhill Hospital overnight into Wednesday 6 November.

A Police Scotland spokeswoman said: "An investigation was carried out and the fire is being treated as wilful."

The investigation was delayed as the building suffered structural damage, and experts waited until it was safe.
