Residents evacuated after Forties Pipeline leak found in Aberdeenshire

A number of residents have been evacuated from an area near Netherley, Aberdeenshire, after a leak was detected at the Forties pipeline.

Petrochemicals giant Ineos, which completed its acquisition of the pipeline system in October, said the people had been offered temporary accommodation.

The Netherley to Cookney road has been shut and a 300-metre cordon set up around the site.
