Claims over Shetlands postponed





An attempt to persuade Lerwick Sheriff Court that the Shetland Islands are not legally part of Scotland has been postponed until next month.
Stuart Hill, 65, planned to argue that the islands were only passed from Denmark to the Scots crown in the 15th-century as security for a debt.

Mr Hill is the defender in a civil action but will argue that Scots law has no jurisdiction over him.

He believes Shetland was only on long-term loan to Scotland.
