EMERGENCY services were called out to a two-vehicle road accident in Trondra this morning (Wednesday).
The police, fire and ambulance services were called out and the B9074 road was closed before being reopened.
Police said two people were due to be taken to hospital.
The fire service said they received the call at around 7.50am, with an appliance from Scalloway and one from Lerwick attending.
Fire control said cutting gear, a safety jet and one hose reel jet was used, with their stop message coming in at 8.30am.
Parents had earlier been advised not to put children to school in Hamnavoe as teaching staff on the Scalloway side were unable to travel through Trondra.
A Police Scotland spokesperson said: “Around 7.55am on Wednesday, 9 December, 2020, police were called to a report of a road crash involving two vehicles on the B9074, Trondra.”
