Caledonian MacBrayne's managing director is to leave the ferry company to take up the role of chief executive at a Scottish charity.

Last October, Martin Dorchester said he was leaving CalMac before later deciding to continue beyond his planned leaving date in March this year.

He said a move to nationalise ferry services had changed his mind.

CalMac said Mr Dorchester was now leaving to join Includem, which supports vulnerable young people.
