Shetland Islands Council's finances get 'clean bill of health'

Shetland Island Council's financial accounts have been given a clean bill of health by Audit Scotland for the first time in seven years.

The authority was criticised last year for the poor quality of its financial statements and inadequate working papers.

This year, they were submitted ahead of time and were described as being of a high standard.

The council's new chief executive was named as Mark Boden earlier this month.
