British Heart Foundation left £2m in Margaret Lyon will

A businesswoman from the north east of Scotland has left more than £2.2m to the British Heart Foundation.

Sheep breeder Margaret Lyon, from Ardmiddle, near Turriff, died last December aged 77.

She was believed to have had several heart operations during her lifetime, and made the charity the sole beneficiary of her estate.

The British Heart Foundation's Scottish director, Marjory Burns, said a lot would be done with the money.
