Enviromental officers and Police Scotland have been called in to investigate after a Buchan resident discovered two sheep carcasses at Aikey Brae.

Resident Billy Rennie told the Buchanie that he had never before seen sheep grazing at the site and suspected that the animals - one of which he described as having been ‘butchered’ - were dumped at the disused quarry.

The site near Old Deer has regularly been used by gypsies and Aberdeenshire Council is eager to make it an authorised site.
