A Danish life science company is to create 30 jobs over the next three years in the Highlands.

CorporateHealth International ApS is to invest £5.7m in establishing a new diagnostics centre at the Inverness Campus.

The centre's staff will analyse images captured by video camera capsules - small devices swallowed by patients.

The capsules offer an alternative to diagnostic endoscopies and colonoscopies.

Highlands and Islands Enterprise is supporting the project with investment of £600,000.

CorporateHealth International UK Ltd, a subsidiary of the Danish firm, will run the centre.
