A giant low-loader lorry hit double trouble as it tried to transport a heavy electricity transformer across Inverness-shire.

The monster transporter of Slough-based Allelys Heavy Haulage was taking the heavy unit to a power station near Cannich when it first hit trouble in Inverness.

It was planned to take the low-loader, which has 64 wheels on eight axles, up Scorguie Road to avoid using the Muirtown swing bridge over the Caledonian Canal.
