A councillor has quit as a member of Highland Council's SNP group, which leads the local authority's ruling administration.

Donnie Kerr, who represents Inverness Central, has become an independent.

Mr Kerr was briefly suspended from the SNP group last year for alleged comments he made to a fellow SNP councillor.

Nationalist group leader Drew Hendry said he wished Mr Kerr all the best for the future.

In a statement, Mr Kerr said: "I will continue to represent my constituents to the best of my abilities as an Independent member of Highland Council."

The SNP, Liberal Democrats and Labour make up the council's administration.
