Rafters have agreed to stay off a stretch of river in Perthshire for part of the week after reaching an agreement with anglers.

Perth Sheriff Court was told a compromise had been reached between rafters and salmon fishermen in a feud over activities on the River Tay.

Salmon fishermen had claimed the rafts made fishing impossible.

Rafters will now only use the river from 13:30 on Wednesdays until Sunday evenings during the salmon season.

Solicitor Kevin Lancaster represented all of the interested parties when he appeared at Perth Sheriff Court to confirm that a deal had been agreed.

He confirmed that the rafters would only take to the water between Wednesday afternoon and Sunday evening during the official salmon fishing season.
