A Labour frontbencher has claimed that north Sutherland was chosen to host the UK’s first spaceport because it is “close” to Tory seats – despite the nearest being 100-miles away.
Plans to create a "British Cape Canaveral" in the north Highlands could support 400 jobs and help "reverse" population decline in fragile communities.
The Highlands is to have the first spaceport in the UK - sparking a jobs boom potentially worth £3.8 billion to the economy.
