A bus was stolen and driven around a Scots town in a dramatic incident last night.

The massive vehicle was taken from Hanover Street in Fraserburgh, Aberdeenshire around 9.35pm last night.

Police launched a hunt and later traced it to the north-east town's College Bounds- less than half a mile away.

Cops have confirmed they have arrested a 30-year-old man in connection with the incident.

A picture from the scene shows the vehicle parked up on a pavement while onlookers gather to watch the drama unfold.
