The line between Inverness and Tain was reopened last night after a crash between a train and a car prompted the closure of the railway.

Yesterday just before 9pm ScotRail announced the re-opening of the line, although some minor disruption is still expected along the Far North Line.

Trains were cancelled following an accident involving a private vehicle and a ScotRail service at the Delny level crossing at about 3pm.

Although an air ambulance was scrambled to the scene, witnesses believe nobody was seriously hurt or taken to hospital.

The rail line remains closed, with all of this evening's services cancelled or delayed subject to replacement buses.

Customers travelling on the line are still advised to check with the train operator that their trains are running on time.
