A memorial service for Kester Wigram, who went missing more than two weeks ago after setting off from St Ninian’s Isle in a kayak, is to be held today at St Columba’s Church in Lerwick.

Following the service at 11.30am there will be soup and sandwiches at the Bigton Hall and a bonfire at St Ninian’s Isle. Those attending are asked to wear something bright and donations to the Callum Younger Reach Fund will be gratefully received at the church.

Police are still treating the disappearance of Mr Wigram, a popular New Zealander with a spirit of adventure who had lived in Shetland for the last 10 years, as a missing person inquiry.
