THE POLICE, fire and ambulance services have been called to a one vehicle road traffic accident on the single-track road between Ulsta and Burravoe in Yell.

The Sumburgh based helicopter was tasked to transfer the driver of the vehicle to hospital in Lerwick. His injuries are thought not to be serious.

The road was closed for a time this morning while the wreckage was cleared, and has since fully re-opened.

A Police Scotland spokesperson said: “Officers were called to the B9018 near Yell at around 9.20am on Monday, 8 March, 2021, following a one car crash.”

The ferry service on Yell Sound was disrupted for a period but has since returned to its scheduled service.
