Coll remembers The Nevada - its own Whisky Galore

Residents on the Hebridean island of Coll have been commemorating the 70th anniversary of an event which provided them with their own episode of Whisky Galore.

The Nevada was bound for Africa when it went aground on rocks, giving islanders an illicit bounty which brightened the dark days of World War II.

Alcohol, cigarettes, hair cream were among the goods and it also left a mystery over a missing stash of tens of thousands of pounds.
