A road is closed in Fife following a major accident involving three cars and a van with emergency services still at the scene.

Pictures from the incident on the A92 at Chapel-Redhouse near Kirkcaldy show a hire van fliped by the central reservation with a white car smashed beside it.

Another red car is facing the opposite direction to the traffic and multiple emergency services are in attendance, including the Scotish Fire and Rescue Service, Scottish Ambulance Service and Police officers.

The incident happened just before 6pm. It's not currently known if there are any injuries. Those stuck up in the huge pile up of traffic say they have been stuck for for a number of hours.
