Key talks to improve the safety of the A697 are to take place this week, with one campaigner branding the current situation as being ‘almost out of control’.

The road has come under serious scrutiny recently, following a spate of accidents – some fatal – over the last few months.

Only last Friday, two people suffered serious, but not life-threatening injuries, after a collision between a Peugeot and 4x4 on the stretch near to the Bridge of Aln (pictured, right).
