SOUTH mainland councillor Allison Duncan has praised the work of the ambulance and police services after being involved in a two-vehicle road accident on Wednesday morning.
One person was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries following the car accident on the A970 in Levenwick at 11.40am.
Duncan soon after attended Wednesday afternoon’s meeting of Shetland’s community safety and resilience board and he praised the speed of the ambulance and police in attending the scene.
The main road north of Lerwick, meanwhile, was also partially blocked at the Brig o’ Fitch following a two-vehicle crash near lunchtime.
A Ford Focus and a Kia Picanto were both extensively damaged in the collision which happened at the junction before noon.
There were no reports of any serious injuries.
