An Aberdeen-based animal shelter has temporarily halted its pet food bank service following a “serious incident” involving one of its staff members.

The police are currently handling the situation at Mrs. Murray’s Home for Stray Dogs and Cats in Seaton, which happened on Wednesday afternoon.

The charity posted on Facebook: “We have sadly had to take the decision to suspend our pet food bank service with immediate effect.

“The safety of our staff is a priority and once measures are in place and we can resume our work in the community safely, we will commence this service, albeit in a different format.
