At least two people have been hurt at a rally event in the Highlands, police said.

The Highland Car Club Snowman Rally in Glenurquhart Forest, near Loch Ness, has been abandoned and emergency services are attending.

Northern Constabulary said initial reports suggested a car left the track during stage one of the event, and hit spectators.

Police said no further information was available at this time.

The race is the opening round of the 2013 Scottish Rally Championship.
