The A82 between Inverness and Kilvean was brought to a standstill this afternoon after a serious accident involving three vehicles.

Both carriageways were closed for over an hour as emergency services used hydraulic equipment to remove the vehicles – two cars and a pick-up truck. The road reopened at 3.09pm

It is understood that no-one was seriously injured.

A spokeswoman for the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service said: "We were called at 1.04pm to an accident on the A82. We had two appliances in attendance.

"We used hydraulic cutting equipment at the scene.

"We were there to clear the incident, and to make the carriageway safe."

A police spokesman said: "Police were called around 1.05pm, following the report of a three-vehicle road crash involving two cars and a pick-up truck on the A82 near Kilvean, just south of Inverness.

"The road was partially blocked for around 90 minutes and there does not appear to be any serious injuries."

The Scottish Ambulance Service was also in attendance.
