Three people are being reported to the procurator fiscal in connection with a fire at St Clement’s Hall last Monday.

In a brief statement Police Scotland said that “two males and a female” were to be reported for offences in connection with the fire at the St Olaf Street building in Lerwick on 20th October.

The ground floor of the listed building was left badly damaged by the fire.

Firefighters were called to the hall at 7.46pm and the blaze took more than an hour to extinguish. The two-storey building was believed to have been unoccupied and no-one was injured.
