Weather hampers European market's first day

Yesterday's poor weather caused "quite a lot of damage" to anticipated sales figures for the European Market on Loch Prom - but's it's hoped they can come again.

Around thirty stalls selling all manner of continental goods and foodstuffs opened on Wednesday to co-incide with the arrival of the latest cruise liner the Saga Sapphire.

However, heavy rain and thick mist for large parts of the day kept crowds down and passengers on the cruise liner didn't make it ashore.

Market organiser Olivier Simonin from Strasbourg says he's been trying to bring all the stalls to the Island for the last five years.
