An investigation is under way after a body was discovered near a roundabout in Aberdeen in the early hours of the morning.

They added: “Around 3.30am on Saturday, September 17, police were called to the roundabout at Stoneywood Road and Victoria Street, Dyce, following the discovery of a body.

“The death is being treated as unexplained, pending further enquiries, which are at an early stage.”
