    In the tiny Shetland village of Gulberwick, hundreds of locals lit flaming torches as they marched down to the sea to burn a specially-built Viking longboat on Sunday.
    It's one of a number of "Up Helly Aa" fire festivals, that Shetlanders stage annually to commemorate their Viking heritage.
