Emergency services are currently dealing with a one-vehicle crash in the Highlands.

The A82 road is closed between Invergarry and Spean Bridge. The fire service received a call at 5.22pm and sent three appliances from Spean Bridge, Fort William and Foyers to the scene at the Letterfinlay Lodge House.

UPDATE:

Man airlifted to hospital with serious injuries after A82 crash

A fire service spokeswoman said the car was balancing over a burn that has a 20ft drop.

She added cutting gear was used to remove a casualty and they were now in the care of paramedics.

It is understood there was also a second person in the car who was out of the vehicle before emergency services arrived.

A 154-mile long diversion has been put in place while the road remains closed. A nearby cafe, The Bridge Cafe, reopened its doors to help stranded motorists in need of a “comfort break”.
