Fire breaks out in Ardrossan ferry terminal

A small fire has been extinguished at the Ardrossan ferry terminal in North Ayrshire.

The fire inside a waiting room at the terminal building was reported at about 12:00.

Two fire engines attended the scene.

Services between Ardrossan and Arran were earlier disrupted after the MV Isle of Arran ferry broke down due to gearbox problems.

A spokeswoman for ferry operator CalMac later said: "Emergency services attended to a small electrical fire in the Ardrossan waiting room. This was quickly extinguished and no damage or harm caused."

Ferry services are continuing to run as normal.

The terminal is owned by Peel Ports, who were recently criticised by CalMac in a row regarding investment.
