Prince-backed tweed firm revived

A tweed maker supported by Prince Charles has gone back into business through a rescue bid following its collapse.

Landowner Geoffrey Minter has bought the rights to the designs by Hunter's of Brora in Sutherland. A new shop selling the tweed is to open in Brora.

In 2004, the prince hosted a dinner for more than 100 guests in Holyrood Palace, themed around Hunter's tweed.

Mr Minter has sent him two tweed caps to mark the relaunch of the brand.
