SNP rules out Moray Council administration

The SNP will not take on administration of Moray Council after exploring possible alliances.

The SNP is the biggest party on the authority, holding 11 out of the 26 council seats after winning two recent by-elections.

The nationalist group has now said it did not have enough support from other councillors to make running the council a viable option.

The Independent and Conservative coalition will remain in charge.
