INVESTIGATIONS into possible contamination from wartime chemical weapons near a former RAF station have drawn a blank.
However, the results of laboratory tests need to be known before the site can be given the all-clear.
Workers from Moray Council’s contaminated land unit spent several days earlier this month on site close to the former air base at Kinloss.
Officers from the Scottish Environment Protection Agency also scanned the dunes, investigating the possible presence of radiation from cockpit instruments which it was believed may have been buried in the area.
It is known that a large number of aircraft were dismantled on site at the end of World War II, and geophysical surveys detected underground anomalies that both the council and SEPA believed were worthy of further investigation.
