A major wild salmon producer has said it is giving up the culling of seals after protests at a harbour in the north east of Scotland.

The Montrose-based Scottish Wild Salmon Company claimed it had been confronted by activists at Gardenstown harbour.

The company said it was removing firearms from its operations, meaning only acoustic devices would be used to drive seals away from nets.

The protest group, Sea Shepherd, expressed "delight" at the news.

Police Scotland said it was monitoring the situation.
