The Independent/SNP administration which has been running Highland Council since May last year has collapsed.
The 34 Independents had joined forces with the 17-strong SNP group following last year's STV elections which resulted in no overall control for the first time ever on the council. There are 21 Lib Dem councillors, 7 Labour and no Tories.
However, the Indies and the Nats have had a series of disagreements over the past year, so it's not a great surprise that the administration has fallen apart.
I suspect the most likely scenario is for an all-party administration to take over.
