Three teenage boys have been charged in connection with a fire which ripped through Dundee’s Hilltown market.
The blaze on September 12 ravaged the indoor market and the neighbouring Fit4Less gym.
The market closed in December 2016 but was about to reopen as home to the charity Tayside Furniture Re-Use Network, which refurbishes unwanted furniture so it can help those in need.
Three males, aged 13, 15 and 16, have now been charged in connection with the fire, police confirmed on Tuesday night.
A spokesman said: “Police Scotland can confirm that two boys aged 13 and 15 and a 16-year-old male have been charged in connection with a fire at the indoor market, Main Street, Dundee on Wednesday September 12.
“The boys aged 13 and 15 will be reported to the children’s reporter and the procurator fiscal.
“A report will [also] be submitted to the procurator fiscal in respect of the 16-year-old male.
“Enquiries are continuing.”
