, by , in News

Shetland police are continuing to deal with a disturbance in the centre of Brae after being called out this afternoon.

The force tweeted they were at the scene along with the ambulance service on Monday evening. Officers are guarding an area in the village while others are on patrol.

It is believed the area cordoned off is between Brae Garage and the Northern Lights Bar. Witnesses said there were at least four police vehicles and two ambulances in attendance.

Chief inspector Angus MacInnes was not able to give any more details but confirmed the police were busy with two incidents this afternoon.

In an earlier incident one vehicle crashed in the Staney Hill/Hoofields area earlier this evening. Police said two people were in custody. Nobody suffered any injuries.

Anyone with more information about the two incidents should call police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
