A dog has died after it fell off a bridge into a North-east river.
The Scottish Fire and Rescue Service deployed a water team to Edzell, near Brechin, at 12.53pm.
It came after a dog had plunged over the edge of Gannochy Bridge, which runs across the River North Esk.
Crews carried out searches downstream along the river bank between the overpass and Shaky Bridge.
At 2.20pm the pet was found deceased.
It has now been passed to its owner.
