NHS workers in and around Huntly and beyond will be recognised for their exceptional efforts tonight.

Brodie Murray and his Standing Ovation sound and lighting support team, team, are to light up the town's iconic castle in blue with the NHS Scotland logo.

Two weeks ago, just before the coronavirus lockdown took effect, Brodie and his team staged a drive in movie at the town's Cooper Park.

Brodie said: As a mark of respect and to say a massive thank you to everyone working flat out in the NHS right now we are going to light up the castle in blue between 8pm and 10pm.

"People might be out for a walk and we also plan to live stream it to Facebook. If people are out walking, everyone should stay safe and observe the 2m social distancing guidance. "

Also at 8pm tonight, people are urged to step out of their doors or hang out their windows to clap for carers in the NHS and across all sectors who are on the front-line of the battle against coronavirus.
