Man arrested as oil terminal tightens security

POLICE in Shetland have arrested a 49 year old man on Monday afternoon after alleged threats he had made.

As a consequence security checks at the Sullom Voe oil terminal have been tightened and staff were briefed in line with safety procedures.

Local firearms officers were deployed to an address outside Lerwick where the man was “safely negotiated” from the house at around 2pm.

The man is expected to appear before Lerwick Sheriff Court, on Tuesday.

A Sullom Voe terminal spokeswoman said they had been helping police with their enquiries.
