CALMAC'S three local ferry crossings have been affected by a coronavirus outbreak.

The Gourock to Dunoon, Wemyss Bay to Rothesay and Gourock to Kilcreggan routes are running with amended timetables because of staff shortages.

"Until at least January 23, we will operate an essential services temporary timetable across particular locations."
