A Highland police officer has been arrested and charged in connection with sexual offences.
The case involving Inverness-based police constable Cameron Ross, now suspended, will be called for preliminary hearing at the High Court in Glasgow on March 14.

A spokeswoman for Police Scotland confirmed: “A 37-year-old man has been arrested and charged in connection with non-recent sexual and communications offences”.

He has previously worked in the Western Isles as a trained dog handler and became well-known for his involvement in community activities in and around Stornoway.

Ollie was the first police dog in the UK to be trained to detect drugs and firearms, as well as tracing missing people.
