Emergency works to repair a north-east bridge damaged in a crash are being carried out.
Auchmill bridge, near King Edward, sustained serious damage after a suspected road crash last month.
The masonry parapet at the small crossing was knocked into the Craigston Burn, with Aberdeenshire Council forced to put an emergency road closure in place.
