Rescue sparks West Coast tug return call

COMHAIRLE nan Eilean Siar leader councillor Roddie Mackay has called on the UK government to re-instate the West Coast-based tug after another incident last Thursday night.

An emergency tug had to make a 12-hour voyage from Orkney to help a cargo ship that lost power off the island of Taransay in the Western Isles.
