A body has been found at a Perth retail park during investigations into a major fire.
Around 50 firefighters tackled the blaze at the building, which also housed a pet shop and tile store.
Perth and Kinross Local Area Commander, Chief Inspector Ian Scott, said: “As communicated at the end of last week, our inquiries gave us reason to believe that there may be a person within the building. Our investigation into the fire has therefore been conducted with this possibility in mind.
“Formal identification of the body found has yet to take place, however, we believe that we know the identity of the individual, and specialist officers are providing support to their family at this time.
“The damage to the building is extensive and we are working closely with the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service and other partners to establish the full circumstances. We will maintain a police presence at the scene until the investigation is complete. This may take some time and I would like to thank the local and business community for their support.
“Some disruption in the immediate area is unavoidable while work is ongoing at the site, and there will be no pedestrian access between Glasgow Road and Morrison’s until the area has been made completely safe. We would like to thank local residents for their patience and understanding.”
