CalMac secures £900m contract for Clyde and Hebridean ferries

Caledonian MacBrayne has won an eight-year-contract to operate the Clyde and Hebridean ferry services.

The state-owned firm saw off competition from private sector rival Serco Caledonian Ferries Ltd who had also been bidding for the £900m contract.

First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said the ferry company was "woven into the fabric of the communities they serve".

BBC Scotland's transport correspondent David Miller reports.
