An RAF pilot accidentally bombed the wrong Scottish island during a training exercise, it emerged yesterday.

Two 1,000lb bombs, one of them live, were dropped on uninhabited Am Balg near Cape Wrath by one of two Jaguar jets involved in the mock bombing raid.

But the mission's intended target was An Garbh-Eilean, also uninhabited - more than 20 miles away.
