Lorry driver in fatal A9 crash named as William Cormack

The driver of an HGV that crashed on the A9 near the Berriedale Braes in Caithness late last Thursday night has been named by police.

William Cormack, who was also known as Bruce, was 41 and from Durran near Thurso.

The crash happened at about 23:18 and closed the road for several hours.

The accident delayed the delivery of Scottish independence referendum vote ballot boxes from the far north to a count in Dingwall.

Some ballot boxes from polling places in the far north were taken to Dingwall by a long diversion via Melvich.
