Bin collection delay warning in Highlands after strike

A council has warned that some bins may not be emptied until next week after refuse collections were disrupted during industrial action on Wednesday.

Highland Council had initially said staff would endeavour to catch up on the collections which should have taken place on strike day.

But the local authority has now put out a message via Twitter to warn that some collections may have to wait until the next scheduled uplift.

About 300,000 public sector workers in Scotland went on strike over pensions.
