The Co-operative Group took to the skies to make sure Shetland shoppers had a merry Christmas.

Gales meant boats from the mainland were cancelled for several days, so the society chartered a plane on 23 December to make two trips to the island.

The plane carried more than 40 pallets of fresh, chilled and ambient products, including festive essentials, which were delivered to its food stores in Brae and Lerwick.
