The 23-year-old man who died after a four-vehicle crash on the A9 in the Highlands was a Royal Marine Commando.

The accident involved a military lorry, another HGV, a car transporter and a car.

It happened about one mile south of the Granish junction, north of Aviemore, at 15:05 on Monday.

The Royal Navy said the Marine's next of kin have been informed and their sympathies are with the family.
