Dumfriesshire MP David Mundell has expressed his disappointment over the news.

He said:

"Discussions regarding moving the Lockerbie wreckage back to Scotland as part of live investigations have been ongoing for some time.

"It is extremely disappointing that such moves have gone ahead without communication and consultations locally ahead of the event taking place.

"I have spoken to the Lord Advocate and communicated this disappointment."
