The district heating system will be closed from 10pm on Saturday (30 January) to 6am on Sunday. The area affected includes Sound.

The system was also closed on Tuesday night after a fault was found.

Shetland Heat Energy and Power said it was sorry for any inconvenience caused and will do “everything possible to get things up and running again as soon as possible”.
