The man who died in a fall on a rig in the Cromarty Firth has been named as a 60-year-old from the Glasgow area.
Morris Haddock was working on the Transocean Sedco 712 rig at the Easter Ross port of Invergordon on Wednesday when he fell.
As a police and health and safety investigation continued yesterday, work restarted on the installation in the late morning.
Mr Haddock, who is employed by Transocean, was working on the semi-submersible drilling unit tied alongside when the incident happened at around 6.50am. A spokeswoman for Transocean said: "We suspended work on the rig on Wednesday as a mark of respect."
She added that they had been in touch with his family and were providing help and support at this difficult time. A report on the incident is to be submitted to the procurator fiscal, and it is likely a fatal accident inquiry will be held.
