Iron Age homes unearthed by storm
Researchers have begun excavating the remains of Iron Age houses uncovered by a fierce storm.
The 2000-year-old ruined houses at Baile Sear on North Uist in the Outer Hebrides were exposed when powerful weather swept the island in January 2005.

A family of five died on Benbecula in the same storm as they tried to flee the violent rain and gales.
