A murder inquiry has been launched following the death of a man in the Tillydrone area of Aberdeen.
Emergency services attended a property at Alexander Terrace at around 10am yesterday morning where the body of a man was discovered.
Following extensive enquiries carried out through the day yesterday, the circumstances surrounding the death were treated as suspicious and a woman was detained last night to assist officers.
Detective Inspector Gary Winter, who is leading the investigation, said: “I can reassure the public that this was a contained, isolated incident and that at no point was there any threat to the wider public.
“Officers will remain at the scene throughout today to carry out further enquiries and I would like to thank people living in the vicinity for their patience while this is done.
“Our investigation is still at an early stage and I would urge anyone with information to contact Police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111 if you would prefer to remain anonymous.”
