Call for Aberdeen control rooms closure condemnation

Aberdeen councillors are to be asked to condemn the decisions to close the city's police and fire control rooms.

The motion from the Labour-led administration on Thursday also calls for a judicial review of the moves to close both centres.

The Scottish government has said the closure decision was one for the relevant police and fire authorities.

It believes the city will be well served by the newly centralised operations when they are created.

The fire centres which handle emergency calls at Aberdeen, Inverness, Dumfries, Fife and Falkirk will close.

Police Scotland will be closing control rooms in Aberdeen, Stirling, Dumfries, Glenrothes and Pitt Street in Glasgow.
