A memorial service will take place in Stornoway this afternoon for one of the victims of the 'Louisa' fishing boat tragedy. 

Paul Alliston, who was 42 and was also known as Paul Macmillan, was lost when the shellfish vessel sank off Mingulay on Saturday April 9, 2016. 

Mr Alliston, who was the captain of the 'Louisa', was from Lochs. 

His body has never been recovered.

Two other men - Chris Morrison (27), from Leverburgh, and Martin Johnstone (29), from Caithness - perished in the tragedy. 

Today's memorial service will be held at Martin's Memorial Church at 1.30pm.
