The Shetland Airlift
Eleven lorries were waiting at Aberdeen to take supplies to Tesco's Shetland stores in Lerwick, but successive cancellations, owing to adverse weather conditions, have led to some serious re-routing this morning. The vehicles have been driven to Livingstone for a chartered Hercules freight aircraft that's ready for an 11.00 am departure to Sumburgh. The convoy of produce will then be on its way to the stores for what will be a welcome delivery and ... a busy afternoon of selling from currently depleted shelves. As the superimposed image above declares - 'Every Brussel Helps' - and full details of the delivery come to you courtesy of Shetland News.
