A woman has been taken to hospital with head injuries after a serious crash on the main A9 road in the Highlands.

Northern Constabulary said emergency services were called out to the one vehicle accident between Nigg roundabout and Fearn just before 09:00.

A spokesman said the A9 had to be closed in both directions to allow a clear-up and accident investigations.

The road has since reopened. Further details of the injured woman are yet to be released.
