Drivers in Inverness have been warned to take extra care when driving on main raids after motorists narrowly missed a large metal pole that had been hung from a bridge over the A9 in Inverness.
One motorist who narrowly missed hitting the metal pole pulled over and flashed a torch at other motorists to try and warn them of the danger.
A lorry driver who saw the pole took to social media to vent his anger towards the individuals responsible for hanging the metal chain and police from the bridge.
“The joys of lorry driving, this is now the things you have to put up with.
“Metal pipes on chains hanging at lorry windscreen height. What next!?
“This was on the A9 leaving Inverness on Monday; the guy in the van was using a torch to warn oncoming trucks about it and directing you to the inside lane was about 2 am..”
A spokesperson for Police Scotland said:
“Police called around 3.05 am on Tuesday, 31 March 2020, following a report that a piece of rope with attachment had been draped over the handrail of an overbridge at the Raigmore Interchange, Inverness.
“Officers attended, and the item was removed.
“Enquiries are ongoing to trace the people responsible for placing it there”.
