Weather grounds inter-island flights

Inter-island flights from Tingwall airport have been grounded all day owing to ice and snow on the runway.

The wintry conditions meant that Fair Isle and Foula were left without an air link to the mainland.

Meanwhile forecasts hinting at strong winds bound for Shetland have led NorthLink to warn of delays to their north and southbound sailings tomorrow night.

The Tuesday evening sailing from Aberdeen to Lerwick has been pushed back from 7pm to 10pm, while the ferry providers also warned that the southbound ferry may remain in the harbour until the early hours of Wednesday morning.
