The public have been advised to avoid eating shellfish from the West Loch Roag area.

Monitoring work undertaken on behalf of Food Standards Scotland has identified raised levels of shellfish toxins.

A telephone scam is currently circulating in the islands.

The scam consists of a telephone call and a recorded message informing the recipient they have an outstanding HMRC tax fraud against them, and that they will be arrested if they do not pay immediately. 

A CNES Trading Standards spokesperson said: “This scam is designed to create a sense of urgency to get people to make decisions without thinking things through.

A co-ordinated approach to safety at sea for all leisure users is part of a new plan by HM Coastguard to proactively protect people from getting into trouble on or in the water.

A meeting held at the Stornoway Coastguard Operations Centre on Thursday (June 6th) brought together maritime leisure groups representing sailors, surfers, kayakers, divers and open-water swimmers to look at ways in which people can be kept safe – stopping dramas from happening and improving the chance of rescue if they do.

Maritime operations specialist Carol Campbell told welovestornoway.com today (Monday June 10th): “It’s really Stornoway Coastguard being more proactive and reaching out to the maritime community. Rather than waiting for things to go wrong and stepping in, we’re aiming for better mutual understanding between leisure users and safety services to reduce accidents at sea.

The following planning applications are pending consideration by Comhairle nan Eilean Siar.

All information and accompanying documents are publicly available on the CnES website
