A teenager has been charged with vandalism at an abandoned Aberdeen care home.
Police were called to Bucksburn Care Home in Kepplehills Road on Sunday evening after a number of windows were smashed.
A number of youths were seen throwing stones at the derelict premises during the incident.
Police confirmed a 14-year-old boy had since been charged with vandalism and that officers continued to look for others involved.
A spokeswoman for the force said: “We were called to Bucksburn Care Home on Sunday at around 7.20pm.
“A 14-year-old has been charged and will be reported to the youth justice management unit.
“Inquiries are ongoing and we encourage anyone with information to contact police.”
In addition to vandalism, locals have also raised concerns about fire raising at the Newhills site.
And it has emerged that after the police involvement on Sunday, firefighters were called to the building later that same evening following reports of a blaze.
A spokesman for the fire service said: “We received a call at 10.09pm and sent two appliances to the building.
“The fire was out on arrival.”
The former care home has lain empty since 2014 when it closed after inspectors exposed “serious failings” in the way it was run.
A damning Care Inspectorate report ordered immediate improvement, three months before operator Pepperwood Care closed it down over claims it was “financially unviable”.
The sudden closure forced a rush to find new homes for its 16 residents.
In the wake of Sunday’s incidents, Bucksburn councillor Barney Crockett said: “It’s a real shame when this sort of thing happens. More respect should be shown for the property.
“It is particularly sad to have it happen at a care home which has offered help to people and in the vicinity of the community church.”
