Accounts Commission hearing into Shetland council

Protesters called on the council to stand down and face re-election
There were earlier public protests over the financial situation

The Accounts Commission is to hold a public hearing into the workings of Shetland Islands Council.

It will examine how the authority handled the appointment and dismissal of chief executive David Clark, a process which cost more than £300,000,

An Audit Scotland report last week was critical of the council.

The Accounts Commission hearing is expected to take place towards the end of June. There were earlier public protests over the financial situation.
