Heavy rain and lying water continues to cause problems in many parts of Deeside and Donside.

Driving conditions on numerous roads were hazardous with huge puddles and lying water and sections of the B974, B977 and A980 were among those closed to traffic.

Flooding has been a problem at Strachan again with the River Feugh bursting its banks and leaving fields and parts of the road under water.

The Falls of Feugh was a raging torrent after nearly 24 hours of rain.

Meanwhile, the Grampian Strategic Co-ordinating Group is continuing to monitor river levels across Aberdeenshire as weather forecasts suggests more heavy rain is on its way over the weekend.

With increased flooding on various roads around Aberdeenshire, Grampian Police is urging people to drive safely.

Some roads may need to be closed to address localised flooding.

A spokesman said: “This decision is not taken lightly as we appreciate the disruption caused, but it is done to maintain public safety and drivers must comply with these signs for their own safety.

Driving through through large areas of surface water is dangerous as it is impossible to tell how deep the water might be and it can flood your engine.”
