Shark 'nursery' found on Mingulay Reef

A deep-sea shark spawning ground has been discovered on Scotland's only inshore coral reef.

It was found by the team from Edinburgh's Heriot-Watt University which discovered the reef itself.

They discovered egg cases of the blackmouth catshark on the Mingulay Reef in the Outer Hebrides.
