Footage shows 'lice-infected wild salmon'

It is being claimed that wild salmon returning to a river on Lewis are infested with sea lice originating from local fish farms.

Salmon and Trout Conservation Scotland said wild fish were ending up "plastered with hundreds" of lice.

Local salmon producers said they took fish health and welfare "very seriously".
