Four people were seriously injured in a crash involving two vehicles in Moray.

Several ambulances and an air ambulance were called to the head-on collision on the A96 between Lhanbryde and Mosstodloch at about 16:00.

A 29-year-old man and 23-year-old woman, both from Germany, who were travelling in a white Opel Corsa, suffered serious injuries.

The man was airlifted to Raigmore Hospital in Inverness in a critical condition.

A 24-year-old man and a 25-year-old woman who were travelling in a red Vauxhall Corsa also suffered serious injuries.

Those remaining three casualties were taken initially to Dr Gray's Hospital, Elgin but later transferred to Aberdeen Royal Infirmary.

Sgt Colin Matheson, of Police Scotland, said "We are appealing for anyone who witnessed the collision or saw either of the vehicles before the collision to get in touch with us."
