Barge falls off trailer onto A9 near Inverness

A canal barge came off a trailer and partially blocked a carriageway of the A9 in the Highlands for several hours.

The incident happened just before 14:30 at Daviot near Inverness.

No-one is thought to have been injured in the incident, but it had caused traffic to slow down in and around where the accident happened.

Traffic Scotland said the barge has been removed and the road was being swept clean of debris.
