Traffic is at a standstill on a section of the A82 south of Fort William after a collision between a bus and a two vehicles.

Eyewitnesses said there were "walking wounded", with emergency services on the scene.

The incident, near to the 40mph signs on the entrance to the Highland town, is the second within two days on the same section of road.

A two-vehicle collision yesterday closed the road for five hours.

A post on Traffic Scotland's Twitter feed said: "Road closed in both directions due to an RTC

"Please be patient if stuck in traffic."

Andrew Bryce, a lorry driver, told the Courier: "It is a nasty accident, but it does not look like anyone is seriously injured, just walking wounded I hope. Emergency services are on the scene, and they are diverting traffic."

The diversion route is via the Corran Ferry.
