Rest and Be Thankful closed after rock and mud landslip

The main road between Glasgow and Argyll has been closed by a landslide again.

It is the seventh time in five years that the A83, near the Rest and be Thankful, has been forced to shut.

Heavy overnight rain washed about 100 tonnes of rocks and mud down the mountainside on to the carriageway.

Drivers have been facing a long diversion. BBC Scotland's Catriona Renton reports from Glen Croe near Ardgarten.
