A man has appeared in court after drugs with an estimated street value of more than £200,000 were recovered in Aberdeen following a fire.

Police Scotland said the heroin recovery was made following the execution of a search warrant in the Torry area on Wednesday.

It is understood the warrant was obtained after officers were called to the same building due to a fire.

Scott Simpson, 42, faced a drugs charge at Aberdeen Sheriff Court.

He made no plea and was released on bail.

Meanwhile, three men and two women are due in court after drugs worth £40,000 were seized in Fraserburgh.
