Police in the Highlands were called out to the second crash in days on the busy A82 in the Scottish Highlands. 

The accident happened at Torlundy, near Fort William, at around 4pm and involved a tipper lorry and a car.

There were no reports of any injuries and a driver has been charged in connection with road traffic offences.

The A82 was closed for some time between Torlundy and the village of Spean Bridge with traffic diverted along the B8004 to Gairlochy.

A police spokeswoman said: "We received a report of a crash between a car and a tipper lorry on the A82 at Torlundy around 4pm on Tuesday, 20 July.

"There were no reports of injuries and one man has been charged in connection with road traffic offences. The road has re-opened."

It follows an accident on the same road on Saturday, in Fort William, which led to the death of a motorcyclist.

The 56-year-old was taken to Belford Hospital but died from his injuries.

The A82 was sealed off for almost seven hours with traffic diverted onto the Corran Ferry.

On July 1, emergency services were called to the A82 at Lochend, between Drumnadrochit and Inverness, to deal with a two vehicle accident.

It came days after a motorcyclist was killed on the same stretch of road.

A major consultation is underway looking into the safety of the road.
