DJ flies to club's rescue.

A HIGHLAND nightclub owner splashed out pounds 5,000 on a private jet to bring dancefloor legend Pete Tong up from London.

Around pounds 1,000 will go on keeping Inverness Airport open for an extra two hours so the DJ's plane can land at 11.30pm.

Tong will travel to Scotland straight after his Radio 1 show ends at 9pm on Friday.

Ally Macleod, who owns the Motion nightclub in Inverness, realised there were no scheduled flights that late, but he was determined not to let down hundreds of fans who paid pounds 25 to see the DJ.

Tong will fly from Stansted and be on stage before midnight. He plans to play to 3am and return home on the same jet.

Mr Macleod said: "I wanted to ensure we have a night to remember."
