BBC Radio Scotland's regional news bulletins covering the Highlands and Islands are to move to new times and durations from 30 September.

The news broadcast from Inverness will be available in six slots, each lasting six minutes, Monday to Friday.

The bulletins will be broadcast at the new times of 06:30, 07:30, 08:30, 12:30, 16:30 and 17:30.

BBC Scotland said the move would provide listeners with more opportunities to hear local news.

The bulletins from Inverness cover the Highlands, Western Isles and parts of Argyll and Moray.

A spokesman said: "We know our audiences really appreciate getting the news, sport and weather from their own area from the BBC throughout the day.

"We hope by changing to this more regular pattern we'll allow even more of them to do just that, no matter what their daily routines are or when they're able to tune in."
