The Buckie-registered Aubretia was left drifting without power
A large fishing net which is the length of about six football pitches has been lost overboard from fishing boat.

It is so big that the Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA) issued a warning to vessels in the Pentland Firth to beware.

It was lost from the Bergen-registered Krossfjord and has been seen by boats.

The Buckie-registered Aubretia was left drifting without power on Saturday after catching its propeller on the net, and was towed into Scrabster.
