Car crashes onto railway tracks

A car has crashed onto the railway line at Killiecrankie in Perthshire.

Tayside Police said the alarm was raised just after 0800 GMT. The accident was believed to have been caused by the bad weather.

ScotRail said the car was abandoned but would be cleared before the first train service runs from Perth to Inverness.

The line between Aviemore and Inverness remains closed after a freight train derailed at Carrbridge last Monday during bad weather.

Buses have been taking passengers between the town and city.

ScotRail also said buses were running between Inverurie and Elgin because of the weather.
