Footage of a close call on the A9 has has gone viral after being uploaded to a video sharing site showing a near miss between a car and a wood lorry north of Inverness.

Called A9 Tomich close shave, the YouTube video was recorded by a dash-cam inside the car earlier this week.

It shows the car travelling north on the A9 and then a timber-transporting lorry pulling put out at the Tomich junction near Invergordon.

The driver manages to brake heavily avoiding a collision, but mounts the grass verge as the lorry fails to stop and continues on its way.
