Inverness Prison workers face substances allegation

Two prison workers have been accused of having suspicious substances in their luggage as they returned to Scotland on a flight from Amsterdam.

Customs officials were understood to have detained the pair at Edinburgh Airport before Christmas.

The Scottish Prison Service confirmed a warder at Inverness Prison had been suspended.

Highland Council which employs a drugs counsellor facing the allegation has refused to comment.

The local authority said it did not comment on personnel issues.
