Readers are being asked if they can help to solve a video mystery related to Inverurie.

Gareth Randall, who lives in Colchester in Essex, is an enthusiast of retro/obsolete technology and many years ago bought a job lot of Betamax video tapes through eBay.

He only recently got around to viewing them, and one of them contains home video footage taken in December, 1991, of a woman emerging from Strathorn House near Inverurie and sending a New Year message to her family in England.

Mr Randall said the rest of the tape contains other home video footage.

He added: “If the lady can be identified, it would hopefully make it possible to get the video back to her and/or her family, for whom it may well have sentimental value after so many years.”
