Police and prison officers are tackling an ‘ongoing’ incident at HMP Grampian in Peterhead.

It is understood a number of inmates are involved.

Police Scotland were called to the facility, which opened in March, just before 9pm on Tuesday night.

Last week the Buchanie reported that the Scottish Prison Service had dismissed reports of stand offs between staff and inmates.
