The cause of a major blaze in Aberdeen has not been able to be established, a fire service report has revealed.

The emergency services were called to Valentino's Italian - formerly Dizzy's - in Carden Place early on 23 December.

Flames had spread to the roof of the building, which collapsed. It also contained Lefevre Litigation and Bidwells. No-one was injured.

An incident report seen by BBC Scotland News under Freedom of Information laws said the cause was not known.
