Fire crews were called to an Aberdeen shopping centre this afternoon.
Three appliances – two based at Central station in Aberdeen and one based in Altens – were called to the Cineworld cinema within the Union Square shopping centre at 2.55pm.
Customers of the cinema and its staff were evacuated out of the cinema into the shopping centre as a precaution until it was established that it was a false alarm.
A Scottish Fire and Rescue Service spokeswoman said: “Three appliances were called and established that it was a false alarm.
“The stop message came through at 3.08pm and people are now allowed back into the cinema.”
