Police have appealed for witnesses after two lorries were found on fire.

The emergency services were alerted to the two vehicles being ablaze at a layby on the A97 south of Huntly at about 05:00.

Two lorries - believed to have contained furniture and alcohol - had been stolen from the West Tullos industrial estate in Aberdeen through the night.

Police Scotland said the incidents were being linked.

Det Sgt Scott Gillespie said: "I would appeal for anyone who saw two HGVs in the north east between midnight and 5am this morning to contact police as a matter of urgency as we trace their movements."
