Councillor Isabella Campbell labelled 'Hitler' in Highland Council document by staff member by accident, is there a plan to invade Poland?
A council has apologised after a Councillor was given the title "Hitler" in a document on its website.
The label given to Isabelle Campbell remained on Highland Council's website for three weeks before being removed.
A council spokesman said the password used by the operative to get into the computer system had "randomly attached itself" to Ms Campbell's name.
He said he was not sure why the person used "Hitler" as a password, but the error was not intended as malicious.
The PDF file posted online listed the names and positions of each elected member along with their expenses.
The spokesman said the council had been unaware of mistake and had removed it as soon as it was pointed out.
"This is just a very regrettable and unfortunate technological glitch," he said.
"We will be apologising to Councillor Campbell for any embarrassment that this error has caused."
Ms Campbell is a Liberal Democrat councillor for the Wester Ross, Strathpeffer and Lochalsh ward.
She sits on the council's Gaelic committee, as well as on the planning, environment and development committee.
At present there are no plans to invade Poland by the Council.
And given the Lib Dems are so bad at strategy probably just as well.
However; if Councillor Campbell goes on a tank driving course then questions will have to be asked of her!
We also don’t want her to propose buying tanks in the current economic climate.
