A second 17-year-old has been arrested and charged after a fire at a derelict Ayrshire hotel, police have confirmed.

The fire started in the empty Station Hotel in Ayr at about 3.30pm on Sunday, with seven engines from the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service attending.

The adjacent railway station was evacuated as a precaution while firefighters doused the flames, ScotRail said.

Overhead train lines were also turned off, hitting services from Ayr to Glasgow and the line to Largs and Ardrossan.

A Police Scotland spokesperson said: “A report has been submitted to the Procurator Fiscal.

“Inquiries are ongoing.”
