'Outrage' at Shetland disco swastika

Entertainers behind a charity fundraising disco in Shetland have expressed "disgust and outrage" after a Nazi flag appeared above the stage during the event.

The over-18s disco at the public hall in Burra was held to raise money for community defibrillators and the local minibus association.

However, a large swastika flag was raised on the stage for a few minutes.

Kaleidoscope Disco said it would never condone such an act.

The incident at the weekend was said to have provoked an angry response.

It is not known who was responsible.
