Cargo ship under tow after fire off Fair Isle
A cargo ship which was drifting off Shetland's Fair Isle overnight is being towed to safety to Lerwick Harbour.
The Dutch-registered freighter Myrte, with nine crew on board, suffered engine failure following a small fire on board.
A tug from the port of Sullom Voe attached a line to the vessel on Wednesday morning.
The Myrte was travelling from Invergordon to Lerwick with a cargo of pipes for the oil industry.
The vessel ran into trouble 12 miles south east of Fair Isle.
