"After which, we will then be allowed in to ascertain the damage caused by the fire.

"Only then will we be able to carry out any works required."

The Pavilion wasn't burned by the fire but is said to have suffered massive smoke damage and ash infiltration.

Speaking this week, theatre manager Iain Gordon told the Herald Scotland newspaper: "I've been told I won't be able to gain entry for three months.

"And at the moment, the real fear is the massive repairs that will have to be carried out. All the seats are likely to need replacing, as the ash from the smoke will have seeped into the foam."
