Four lorries, three cars and two vans were involved in the collision, between the Glens of Foudland and Colpy on the southbound carriageway.

Most people involved were free from their vehicles by the time emergency services arrived, but a lorry driver was taken to hospital for treatment.

The man's injuries were not thought to be life-threatening.

The road was closed while three of the lorries and a diesel spill are recovered.
