The A90 has reopened this afternoon after a crash in which three people died.
The road was shut in both directions near Drumlithie for around 21 hours following the collision involving two cars, a Renault Megane and a Ford B Max and a City Link bus.
Thank you for your patience while Police Scotland completed investigations & our teams helped clear the carriageway. @trafficscotland
