Transocean Winner rig removal work continues

Work to remove an oil rig from the east coast of Lewis has taken a major step forward.

Transocean Winner has been moved close to the heavy lift ship, Hawk, ahead of efforts to bring it on board.

The 17,000-tonne rig ran aground at Dalmore, on the west coast of Lewis, in August while being moved to Turkey to be scrapped.

BBC Scotland's Angus Macdonald reports.
