Police have launched an investigation after a fire ripped through the the Day-Today shop in Drylaw and gutted it last night.

Emergency services raced to the inferno on Easter Drylaw Place after a local raised the alarm at 11.50pm.

No one was injured in the blaze.

Earlier today detectives were seen at the incident and a fire appliance was still in attendance.

The shop posted on their Facebook page this morning they will be closed until further notice.
