Aberdeen shopping centre evacuated after false alarm

An Aberdeen shopping centre was evacuated today after a fire alarm was activated.

Shoppers were told to leave the complex just before 10am.

A spokeswoman for Union Square confirmed the evacuation was due to a false alarm and there was no risk to the public.

She said: “We can confirm that the centre was partially evacuated this morning as a precaution following a fire alarm.

“This was a false alarm with no risk to the public and the centre is now fully open and trading as normal.

“The safety of our shoppers is our number one priority.”
