Police have closed parts of a north-east road due to flooding as authorities issued a flood alert.
Officers were called to “various points” of the A90 between Fraserburgh and Peterhead this morning after heavy rain overnight made some parts of the road difficult to pass.
A Police Scotland spokesman said: “The Peterhead to Fraserburgh road has been closed at various points.”
However, he was unable to say where these points are, when the roads were closed or when they may reopen.
There have been several other reports of roads being affected by heavy rain, including stretches near St Fergus and between Crimond and Lonmay.
It comes as the Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA) issued a flood alert covering Aberdeen, Aberdeenshire, Moray and Angus.
A yellow ‘be aware’ weather warning was also issued by the Met Office warns of heavy rain in the Buchan Corner and parts of Moray from 5am until 1pm today.
