Longship to leave

THE world's largest replica Viking longboat leaves Lerwick Harbour today to travel by engine to Liverpool where its broken mast will be repaired.

The 115-foot Draken Harald and its 30-strong crew have been in Lerwick since Friday having had to divert to Shetland when its mast was snapped by winds.
