Emergency repair work to restore a collapsed pavement outside the entrance to the Victorian Market has been completed in one day.
The work at Church Street on Market Lane in Inverness was completed by contractors for Highland Council after reports that the pavement had deteriorated and needed an urgent repair.

A spokesman for Highland Council said: "The works took place on Sunday to repair a collapsed pavement at the entrance of the Victorian Market at Market Lane from Church Street.

"Contactors were on site from 8am to 6pm. The lane was dug up and closed for public access throughout this time."

The council confirmed that the Victorian Market was not open to the public during the repairs.

The spokesman continued: "The works were all completed in one day, and the lane was open again late afternoon on Sunday."
