A man was airlifted to hospital after being injured in a crash on the A9 in Perthshire on Monday.

The 35-year-old is understood not to have life-threatening injuries following the incident at Balhaldie, between Dunblane and Greenloaning.

Police say they received reports that a lorry and van collided on the northbound carriageway, leaving the man trapped.

He had to be cut free by fire crews and was then taken to Edinburgh Royal Infirmary.

The A9 was initially closed in both directions following the incident, but both lanes southbound were restored around 11am. A single lane was opened northbound just after 11 but there are warnings in place for major hold-ups.

Those looking to avoid the area are advised by Traffic Scotland to follow its suggested alternatives.
