Footage has been uploaded to a video sharing site showing a near miss between a car and a lorry on the A9 in Easter Ross.

Called A9 Tomich close shave, the YouTube video is said to have been recorded by a dashboard-mounted camera inside a car on Monday.

It shows the car travelling north on the A9 and then a lorry pulling put out at Tomich junction near Invergordon.

The car's driver swerves to avoid the lorry and mounts the verge.
