Police are appealing for information following reports of wilful fire raising at an Aberdeen Bowling Club.
The incident occurred at the old Grandholm Bowling Club premises in Danestone, Aberdeen between midnight and 1am this morning.
A wilful fire was set, causing extensive damage to the pavillion building with Scottish Fire and Rescue called to the scene at 12.20am.
Investigation officer PC Claire Low from the Bridge of Don Community Policing Team said: “Although the premises were unoccupied at the time of the incident, such thoughtless and reckless behaviour has the potential to put the safety of others and their properties at risk, as well as the obvious financial implications for the owner of the buildings.
“Such dangerous and anti-social behaviour by those persons responsible will not be tolerated.
“I’m appealing for information from anyone who may have seen or heard anything in the area, between 2300 hours on Friday 25th May and 0100 hours on Saturday 26th May 2018.”
Anyone with information is asked to contact Police Scotland on 101 quoting reference CF0124380518.
Information can also be given anonymously via the charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
