An Aberdeen supermarket was evacuated this morning following the discovery of a suspicious package.
Shoppers were told to exit Sainsbury’s on Garthdee Road just after 9am.
Police and fire crews headed to the scene, with two fire engines from North Anderson Drive parked at the far side of the car park.
A fire spokesman said they were there to “maintain the cordon”.
The Scottish Ambulance Service also sent an incident response unit.
Garthdee Road was closed between its junctions with David Lloyd and Asda and a cordon was put in place. The road re-opened around two hours later.
Emergency services could be seen entering the store with staff. After they exited, the supermarket was re-opened.
A Sainsbury’s spokeswoman said: “We can confirm our Garthdee store is closed while police investigate an unattended package.”
The spokeswoman later confirmed the store had reopened and “were sorry for any inconvenience caused to customers”.
