A WESTER Ross museum has found space for a contemporary exhibit during the coronavirus crisis.

Hand-made banners and posters used in a Black Lives Matter show of solidarity in Ullapool in June have been passed to the village's acclaimed museum for display.

The museum said: "While Covid has made us close some of our exhibits, it has unexpectedly given room to a new contemporary exhibit! We are now in receipt of the banners and posters that were put up on the tennis court fence in Ullapool during the Black Lives Matter social distancing protest.

"We are now able to keep these for the education of the next generation.

"Well done to all involved."
