A man's body has been found by firefighters following a blaze in a house in Moray.

Four fire appliances were sent to the property in Moss Street, Keith, at about 21:00 on Thursday.

Police cordoned off the area and the blaze was extinguished about an hour later.

Officers said an investigation was continuing into the cause of the fire, but that there did not appear to be any suspicious circumstances.

Det Insp Norman Stevenson said: "The local community are thanked for their patience whilst emergency services have dealt with this incident."

The A96 was closed in both directions but has since reopened.
