Scottish Natural Heritage website returns after security warning

Scottish Natural Heritage's website has returned after it was temporarily shut down in response to a potential risk to it and other sites.

The government agency closed its site at 17:00 on Tuesday following a security warning of possible threats around the world.

The issue affected SNH's satellite sites, including Pearls in Peril and the Scottish Outdoor Access Code.

The agency was still able to post messages on Facebook.
