An infamous island off the west coast of Scotland used for testing bio-weapons in the 1940s was “engulfed in flames” on Saturday evening.

Dramatic images emerged across social media showing flames rising up from Gruinard Island and plumes of smoke billowing across the skies.

The fire service confirmed it had no involvement with the blaze at the island, also known as Anthrax Island.

The service had earlier released a wildfire warning following a number of blazes in recent days.

It is not known what time the fire started, however, according to reports on social media locals could see smoke from the island around 7pm.
