Hundreds of missing bags belonging to air passengers are being stored at a warehouse at Edinburgh Airport.
Baggage handler Swissport said it was holding the items at the facility to work through a large backlog.
It comes as airports have struggled to cope with summer holiday passenger demand and staff shortages.
Swissport said bags are processed as soon as they arrive at Edinburgh Airport, but a high volume of late luggage had caused the backlog.
A spokesperson said: "This is a challenging time for the entire aviation industry and we know airlines and handling agents have been working hard to reunite passengers with their baggage.
