The new chief executive of Moray Council has been named as Roddy Burns.

Mr Burns succeeds Alastair Keddie, who took early retirement in July following a lengthy absence recuperating from major surgery.

Mr Burns has had the role in an acting capacity for the past 15 months.

He said: "It is an honour and a privilege to have been chosen as chief executive and to have been given the opportunity to serve the people and communities of Moray."
