The scene of Monday morning's crash in Inverness
The funeral of an 82-year-old driver who died in a crash on the A9 has taken place in the Black Isle.

The crash also claimed the lives of two boys from Peru, on a trip organised by the Free Church of Scotland, who were passengers in Donald MacLeod's car.

Police are investigating why Mr MacLeod's Honda CVR crashed into a lorry parked in a lay-by on Monday.

A Free Church of Scotland spokesman, Reverend Alex Macdonald, said Mr MacLeod had died of a heart attack.

Mr MacLeod was a former rector of Fortrose Academy in the Black Isle.

Carlos De Guzman, 15 and Gianmarco Vilcapona, 14, were members of an exchange trip from St Andrew's School in Lima.

Mr MacLeod had been driving them to North Kessock where they were to meet up with the rest of their group for a day trip to Stornoway in the Western Isles.

The crash at 0755 BST involved a Tesco lorry and the Honda about 500 yards from the Kessock Bridge roundabout, Inverness.
