Highest in Memory

Lighthouses are accustomed to taking a battering from the wind and the waves. What has just happened at the Fair Isle South Lighthouse with the impact of high, monstrous waves is considered the most severe in living memory or, perhaps, during the last hundred years. Take comfort that most of us are not directly involved ... and that the lights are now unmanned. Here, added at 19.00, are some video clips of the heavy seas as reported through Shetland News.

Copinsay lighthouse has been affected by rock falls and NLB staff have been warned to stay clear until the situation is risk assessed.
