A 14-month old baby was among a group of tourists who were left stranded on a Scottish island when torrential rain swept away two bridges.
Local boat owners helped police on the Isle of Mull save the group of 14 people after their six vehicles became stuck on the B8035, which skirts the west side of the island below Ben More.
They were rescued at about 8pm yesterday after severe weather triggered a landslide and caused two bridges to collapse.
The visitors were from England, Germany, Switzerland, Germany, New York and Hong Kong. Nobody was injured and they were taken by boat to the nearby Benmore estate.
The road is due to reopen on Friday evening for an hour to allow the owners to retrieve their vehicles.
Diversions of up to 20 miles via Craignure are expected to be in place for some time.
