There is currently no information regarding the condition of the people involved with the crash.

A Facebook post from the local authority said: “Other pick-ups may be delayed as a result but will still take place.”
A spokesman for the ambulance service said: “We received a call at 0656 hours today to attend a road traffic collision on the A941.
“We dispatched one ambulance and a 3RU resource to the scene, which arrived at 0703 hours.
“We transported one male patient to Dr Gray’s Hospital in Elgin.”
A police spokeswoman said: “We were called to a two-vehicle crash on the A941 at 7am. It involved a van and a motorbike.
“Emergency services are on the scene and the road is closed between Elgin and Rothes.”
