A Millport marine professor has hit out at island critics who want the overgrown look of the island's Kames Bay to be dealt with.

In a letter to the Largs & Millport News Professor Geoff Moor of the Marine Biological Station wrote:

"It is almost unutterably sad both that twenty years after the United Nations' so-called 'Earth' summit in Rio (1992) at which nations were invited to sign-up to the Convention on Biological Diversity there remain adults who advocate the deliberate destruction of natural biodiversity on Millport's Kames Bay, a Site of Special Scientific Interest."

Full statement and page of views in the Largs News of August 29.
