Part of the A9 road in the Highlands was closed after a crane toppled onto a railway line.
The BBC reported the Northern Constabulary as having said the crane fell on to the tracks (see picture) in village of Portgower in Sutherland yesterday.
The road was closed between Helmsdale and Brora but has since reopened.
A Network Rail spokesman said: “Network Rail will carry out an assessment of the damaged caused. It is hoped a full service will be able run in the morning.”
Network Rail Scotland tweeted late last night: “The crane has been removed from the tracks & our team is hoping to be able to access the railway to assess the damage soon.
It had earlier tweeted: “Recovery crane on site to remove the crane on the tracks after an RTA, it’s a big job, we’ll then need to check track damage.”
