The convener of Comhairle nan Eilean Siar has paid tribute to former councillor, the Rev Roderick M Mackinnon, who died recently.

Rev Mackinnon, who hailed from Bunavoneadar, Harris, was elected to represent the new Lochboisdale ward from 1975 to 1981 and a former chairman of the Social Work Committee. He was the Church of Scotland Minister in South Uist at that time.

Convener Norman A Macdonald said: ‘Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and his friends.’

The comhairle flag in Stornoway was flown at half-mast.
