The newly renovated St James Quarter in Edinburgh has been evacuated over fire fears just days after being hit with heavy floods.
Large crowds of people were forced to leave the shopping centre on Wednesday afternoon after an alarm sounded.
It comes just days after the £1bn was flooded with rainwater during downpours at the weekend.
The Scottish Fire and Rescue Service was called at around 1.48pm. One appliance was on the scene with crews investigating after finding no sign of fire.
A spokesperson for St James Quarter said it has been a false fire alarm.
The spokesperson said: “The Safety of our visitors and staff is our number one priority.
“Following a false fire alarm, St James Quarter was temporarily evacuated. We are now open as normal.”
A Scottish Fire and Rescue Service spokesperson said: “We received a call around 1.48pm on Tuesday, July 7, to attend the St James Quarter Shopping Centre in Edinburgh.
“One appliance is currently in attendance where, at the moment, there is no sign of fire and crews are investigating.”
