One person's been killed and 11 others hurt, after a bus and a 4x4 crashed in North Ayrshire.
The vehicles collided on the A78 in Ardrossan around 2.15pm on Monday, according to the Scottish Ambulance Service.
It's being treated as a major incident, with a large emergency services response including the air ambulance to airlift casualties.
A spokesman for the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service said: "Our crews are at the scene of a serious road collision on the A78.
"We received a call from the ambulance service at 2.15pm today and firefighters reached the incident three minutes later.
"There were six appliances at the scene and firefighters worked alongside police and paramedics to assist those involved.''
A police spokesman said: "There have been 12 people injured as a result of this incident.
"One person has been pronounced dead at the scene and two people have been taken to the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital by air and by road ambulance.
"Nine others have been treated at the scene or transferred to Crosshouse Hospital for observations."
A spokeswoman for the bus's operator, Stagecoach, said on Monday: "We can confirm that one of our vehicles was involved in a serious incident this afternoon on the A78 near Ardrossan. The service involved was the Service 585 from Greenock to Ayr.
"Our first thoughts are with those affected by this incident. The safety of our passengers and staff is our highest priority and we are assisting the police fully with their investigation into the circumstances.''
The road's been closed in both directions and diversions are in place.
Rising costs, staffing problems and savings targets are piling pressure on services.
