Former Shetland Times reporter Stuart Prestidge has died.
Mr Prestidge began working at The Shetland Times in February 2021. He left in May 2022, before taking up a role with Motorcycle News in September that year.
The 49-year-old died following a battle with mental health.
Mr Prestidge trained as a journalist in 1997, and worked for local newspapers in Scotland, England and in Texas.
Editor Alistair Munro said: “Stuart was a very well-liked journalist who was willing and committed. News of Stuart’s death has come as a great shock to the whole Shetland Times team. Our heart-felt sympathies go out to all his family and friends.”
A Gofundme page has been set up by his family.
