ROSS MSP Gail Ross has announced she is to take up a new role at Dounreay after the Holyrood election.

The SNP MSP for Caithness, Sutherland and Ross is standing down ahead of the poll on May 6.

She said in a tweet that she would start as head of communications at Dounreay, the former nuclear site on the north coast that is being decommissioned.

"Excited to be working with the Caithness and North Sutherland community as the site enters an exciting new stage of decommissioning and clean up!" Ms Ross said in the message.

The Caithness, Sutherland and Ross seat will be contested for the SNP by the current Highlands and Islands MSP Maree Todd.

She will be up against the Lib Dems' Molly Nolan, Labour's Marion Donaldson and the Scottish Conservative's Struan Mackie.
