A road in the Highlands is likely to remain shut until the weekend following a landslide almost a week ago, according to police.

More than 100 tonnes of rock came down on a section of the A890 Lochcarron to Kyle road on Thursday 22 December.

Contractors were asked to help council staff to manage the removal of other rock loosened in the slide.

Northern Constabulary said the section of road was expected to stay shut until at least Friday.
