Two lorry drivers have died after what appears to have been a head-on crash on the A9 north of Blair Atholl.

The collision happened at about 02:25 in the Calvine area.

Tayside Police said the road was closed in both directions and was likely to remain closed at Bruar and Dalwhinnie for much of the day to allow for a full investigation to be carried out.

Officers have appealed for anyone who witnessed the accident to come forward.

Diversions were being put in place, but police warned they would be lengthy and said major traffic disruption was expected.

In a separate incident, a motorist has been seriously injured in a crash on Carron Road in Falkirk.

It happened at about 02:20 at the junction with Foundry Street. The driver of a Honda Civic was taken to Forth Valley Royal Hospital.
