Local MP & Cabinet Secretary to Visit Storm-Damaged Buchan Ports

Sunday, 16 December 2012

Rural Affairs Secretary Richard Lochhead will tomorrow (Monday) visit Buchan ports affected by the extreme weather in the past few days.  Banff & Buchan MP Dr Eilidh Whiteford will accompany Mr Lochhead.  At Fraserburgh, local councillors Brian Topping and Charles Buchan will attend, while Peterhead South & Cruden councillor Stephen Smith will attend at Peterhead.


A highly unusual combination of south easterly gales, low pressure and high tides impacted on the north and east coasts over the weekend. Some harbour damage has resulted and Mr Lochhead will visit Fraserburgh and Peterhead harbours on Monday.

As a result of the storms the Scottish Government Resilience Room (SGoRR) has been activated and met on both Saturday and Sunday so that Ministers could be fully appraised of the developing situation.

Mr Lochhead will be available for photos and interview as he meets with the harbour authorities and local council representatives at each of the three ports, to be shown the damage and discuss measures being taken as a result.
