Deaths of a man and a woman in Merkinch probed

The deaths of a man and a woman in the Merkinch area of Inverness are the subject of separate inquiries, police have said.

A 38-year-old woman's death on Saturday was being treated as "unexplained" at this stage.

Police said a 42-year-old man's death on Sunday could be drugs-related.

A spokesman for Northern Constabulary said the deaths were not connected. Reports on the deaths will be sent to the procurator fiscal.
