A82 closed in two places due to two-car crash and stuck lorry

The A82 has reopened to traffic after a two-vehicle crash and a stuck lorry. The Inverness to Fort William road was shut between Invermoriston and Fort Augustus this afternoon following a collision at around 12.55pm on Bank Holiday Monday. Further north on the same route, a lorry blocked the road after it became stuck while turning.

The A82 has now reopened with congestion beginning to ease.
