Police are investigating a deliberate shed fire in the Mannofield area of Aberdeen.
The blaze broke out in a lane behind St John’s Terrace just before 7.30pm on Wednesday.
Officers and the fire service attended the scene and successfully extinguished the flames before they could spread beyond the shed.
Photos show the inside has been burnt-out by the fire with a large amount of charred wood spilling out from the frame.
All of the items which were kept inside appear to have been destroyed.
