The former Highland RC is being sued by a helicopter company whose aircraft crashed while collecting ballot boxes in the 1992 general election, reports The Scotsman (p6).

Dollar Air Services is seeking£500,000 in the court of session in Edinburgh. It claims that landing lights were not in place when the plane was attempting to land at Inverie. It was ferrying more than 2,000 votes from Eigg and remote parts of the West Coast to the counting centre at Inverness.

Highland Council, which took over from the regional council, is defending the action which is to be heard on 8 June.
