In this week’s Shetland Times:

•A man who was part of an operation supplying heroin from his home will be sentenced on 14th May, following a jury trial this week.

•A Lerwick resident whose view has been blocked by a house being built in a neighbouring garden has called for the planning department to be more compassionate.

•Shetland Amenity Trust has been awarded about £1.4 million to celebrate the Vikings.

•In this week’s General Election coverage we follow Danus Skene on the campaign trail and speak to him about why voters should back the SNP.

•In the arts Dean Owens and Arthur Nicholson shine at Muckle Roe, and the Town Hall crowd takes a musical melange to heart.

•In sport we have reaction from Shetland’s cup final win over Thurso with a full report of the game too.  And it’s another home victory for Shetland rugby team but the last two fixtures are must win games.
