Talisman platform 'overcrowding' tribunal due to start

A tribunal hearing into allegations of overcrowding on a North Sea oil platform is expected to get under way.

The tribunal follows an improvement notice being issued to Talisman after an inspection of the Tartan Alpha platform, BBC Scotland revealed last month.

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) ordered that changes be made to the accommodation area.

Talisman challenged the notice and a hearing is due to start.

Tartan Alpha is 117 miles (188km) north-east of Aberdeen.
