One of the oldest bakeries in Shetland is to close in the New Year, with the loss of several jobs.

Malcolmson and Co said competition from the supermarkets in Lerwick and a downturn in business was forcing the company to call it a day.

There has also been an offer to buy the premises.

A total of 15 jobs are expected to be lost as a result of the closure of the bakery, which is in the town's Commercial Road.
