Five people were injured, three seriously, when an avalanche hit a climbing party in a gully in the Cairngorms near Glenmore Lodge.

Meanwhile, the body of a fisherman was recovered off Scotland's west coast hours after his four colleagues were rescued when their trawler ran around on rocks near the Isle of Bororay, north-east of St Kilda. Dennis Murray, 48, of Portknockie, near Buckie, was spotted by one of 18 fishing boats which joined in the search.
