Traffic on Matheson Road was disrupted this morning (Friday 21 February) after a high load on a lorry brought down a large tree branch across the carriageway.

Police were alerted at 9.30am after the branch fell, bringing traffic to a stop. Emergency services were quickly on-scene and police worked with the traffic warden to control traffic, while council workers removed the branch from the carriageway.

Police said the work was completed quickly and the road was fully-re-opened by 10am. No vehicles or property were damaged and no-one was injured.
