The internet giant Google has said sorry after the Scottish island of Jura disappeared from its online maps.

Internet users noticed on Tuesday that the island, off the west coast of the Kintyre Peninsula, was visible on the satellite view but not the maps view.

A spokeswoman for Google said: "We are sorry about that. We're aware of the problem, and our engineers are beavering away to fix it.

"We hope to have the map of Jura back to normal as soon as possible."
