Shetland Islands Council has denied concealing evidence which could have absolved a council ferry worker of blame for grounding a ship (The Glasgow Herald p8).

Ferryman John Henry Pearson was sacked by the council after the accident in 1993. He has taken the council to an industrial tribunal for unfair dismissal, and has produced evidence which he claims shows there was a steering fault on the vessel.

The council is defending its' decision.
