Flames had to be extinguished at sheds near a former primary school building in Largs.

A spokesman said: “The Scottish Fire and Rescue Service was alerted at 9.39pm on Tuesday, June 3 to reports of a fire within a shed near the former St Mary’s Primary School in Largs.

“Operations Control mobilised a number of fire engines and firefighters extinguished the flames.
