A counter terrorism seminar for businesses is to be held for the first time in the Highlands.

Delegates will be asked to respond to a simulated terrorist attack designed by the National Counter Terrorism Security Office, under its Project Argus scheme.

The event in Insches Church, Inverness, on 11 March will be hosted by Northern Constabulary and Grampian Police.

NaCTSO founder Richard Flynn will attend along with representatives of the emergency services.

'Not immune'

Police said an expert panel would answer any questions on dealing with an attack.

Chief Supt Bruce Duncan, head of operations at Northern, said: "Events in Glasgow last summer illustrate that Scotland is not immune from terrorism.

"Our aim is to ensure that the north of Scotland is as equally prepared and protected as anywhere else in the UK."
