SHETLAND councillor Jim Henry is making steady progress on the route to recovery after he was knocked down by a car in Glasgow, last week.
The 72 year old member for Lerwick south broke his pelvis in three places when he was struck by a car near the Glasgow SECC, on 20 May.
He was initially taken into intensive care in the Western Infirmary but has since been transferred to the orthopaedic ward where his condition has steadily improved.
Mr Henry has been a councillor since 2003. He also represents the local authority on the board of Lerwick Port Authority.
Its chief executive Sandra Laurenson said Mr Henry was expected to stay in hospital for several weeks.
“He needs to remain still by bed rest until the bones heal,” she said.
