A man has been charged by police after a search for the driver of a lorry that reportedly struck a rail bridge in Inverness.

Train passengers on the Far North Line suffered disruption after the incident forced closure of the route to Kyle of Lochalsh, Wick and Thurso yesterday afternoon.

The HGV was said to have struck the bridge at Shore Street just before 2pm.

A Police Scotland spokeswoman said: "At around 1.55pm on Tuesday, 19 December, 2023, police received a report of a lorry striking a bridge on Shore Street, Inverness.

“A 53-year-old man was charged in connection with road traffic offences.

"A report will be sent to the Procurator Fiscal.”
