“I would like to reassure people that we are treating these incidents as contained with no wider threat to the public.

“There will a significant police presence in the area over the coming days and we will be working with partners to provide support to the local community.”

Ian Blackford, SNP MP for Ross, Skye and Lochaber, told BBC Scotland it was very concerning news and that his thoughts were with all those affected.

Local MSP Kate Forbes and Highland Council convener Bill Lobban have also praised the work of the emergency services.

Mr Lobban said: “We are thankful to our emergency services colleagues for bringing this very serious and shocking incident to a close. 

“We will be providing support to the communities and our partners in every way possible. 

“The communities of Skye and Dornie will be shocked and saddened by these incidents and our thoughts are with the individuals affected.”

Skye councillor John Finlayson said it was “a very tough day” for islanders.

Mr Finlayson told the BBC’s Good Morning Scotland programme: “I’ve never known tragedy like this and there’s two communities that have been affected here – one on Skye and one on the mainland.

“So, it’s a sad day, it’s a tragic day, and it’s a very tough day for us all.”
