Health warning over bat bites

Experts have warned the public to keep their distance from bats after a woman was bitten by one of the animals on Loch Lomond.

The woman has received a course of anti-rabies injections. In 2002 a man from Angus died from rabies as a result of a bat bite.

If you have come into contact with a bat the Bat Conservation Trust advice line is 0845 1300 228.
