Police have confirmed that three people died in two separate crashes in the Highlands and Renfrewshire.

Two people travelling together died following a two-car crash near the Grainish Junction of the A9 north of Aviemore at about 0745 GMT.

A 64-year-old man and a woman, aged 63, were pronounced dead at the scene.
