Isles fish farming jobs 'saved'
More than 100 fish farming jobs are thought to have been saved in Stornoway in the Western Isles.

Marine Harvest has announced that the town's former Fjord Seafood processing plant will become part of a free-standing company.

There had been fears the last salmon processing factory in Stornoway would close as part of rationalisation following a three-way merger.

The new company will now concentrate on developing its own brand.
