A man has been charged after police received multiple calls about a van reportedly being driven into oncoming traffic before "purposefully" reversing into a car.

Police Scotland said it was alerted to the alleged dangerous driving on the A9 at Kessock Bridge, Inverness, at around 6.50pm on Wednesday.

The driver of the car was uninjured.

Officers attended and closed the road as a precaution.

A 49-year-old man was arrested and charged in connection with the incident and is due to appear at Inverness Sheriff Court on Thursday.

"Our enquiries are ongoing and we would be keen to review any dashcam footage that may have captured the white van between 6.40pm and 7.15pm on Wednesday evening."
