THE A96 at Forres and Elgin has been closed due to poor weather conditions.
There was a crash on the Forres side of the Burghead turn off earlier on this evening which closed part of the road in both directions.
Since then, deteriorating conditions have meant that the A96 at Elgin is closed at Eight Acres. It's also closed at the roundabout at the bottom of Forbeshill, on the entrance to Forres.
A short North East Police Division statement said: "The A96 at Forres and Elgin is currently closed due to the weather conditions.
"Local diversions have been put in place."
