Shetland Council staff relocated from headquarters after safety concerns

Shetland Islands Council has been forced to move staff out of its headquarters in Lerwick due to structural concerns with the building.

Over 200 council employees have been relocated from the North Ness building to alternative offices across the town.

The council took on the lease four years ago.

Mark Boden, chief executive: "It is unfortunate that we are having to disrupt the public services which operate out of North Ness."

He explained: "It is essential that work goes ahead to remedy any faults within the property."
