A bomb disposal diver from Nairn-shire has been awarded an MBE in the King's New Year Honours.

Rory Cartwright-Taylor, who is in the Royal Navy, grew up in the Loch Flemington area, going to Cawdor Primary and then Nairn Academy.

The Leading Diver is now based in Faslane and received an MBE for defence.

Mr Cartwright-Taylor is part of the Diving and Threat Exploitation Group, which deploys worldwide to support Royal Navy operations – from dealing with mines and underwater explosives to carrying out challenging engineering tasks on submarines.

A Royal Navy spokesman said: "The Faslane-based diver’s personal contribution has directly impacted on front-line operations."
