Moray's business leaders have been meeting Finance Secretary John Swinney to discuss the local economy in the wake of the defence review.

RAF Lossiemouth was saved from closure under defence cuts which were announced on Monday.

RAF Kinloss will shut as an air base and be taken over by the Army.

Members of the Moray Economic Partnership and community and business leaders were meeting Mr Swinney in Forres.

There was a high-profile campaign by local businesses and politicians who feared losing the bases would devastate the Moray economy.
