As a result of the incident, the A867 was closed between Lochmaddy and Clachan Na Luib for a long period.

There was a diversion route via the A865 and motorists were advised to drive with care as the road is not suitable for larger vehicles.

No details have been released as yet as to whether there were any casualties.
