Personnel on a North Sea platform have been tested after an "unknown substance" was found on board.

Talisman Sinopec Energy UK said all personnel on board the Piper Bravo platform had undergone substance testing by medics.

The company contacted Police Scotland on Saturday.

A Talisman spokesman said it operated a zero tolerance approach to illegal substances, and it would be inappropriate to comment further.
