Firefighters were called out to rescue an engineer from the roof of Peterhead-based seafood processor on Monday afternoon.

Press and Journal reports that fire crews from Peterhead were sent the scene after the man was injured while working at Thistle Seafoods factory in the north-east of Scotland.

A spokeswoman for the company, which produces chilled and frozen seafood, (including breaded, battered and dusted cod, haddock, pollock as well as salmon), said: “One of our engineers was walking on top of the cold store roof when they tripped and fell, twisting their ankle.

“The emergency services were called because of the high location of where they fell, but they are doing fine now.”
