High winds brought by Storm Malik have been causing disruption since this morning with north-east communities bearing the brunt of the conditions.

More than 40,000 households across the Grampian region have been left without power due to the bad weather.

A number of stores and businesses have been forced to close their doors while engineers work to restore power.

Meanwhile, fallen trees and debris on the roads have caused significant disruption to motorists, while many public transport services have been cancelled.

Police and local authorities are advising people to only travel if it is essential to do so.

The Met Office put an amber weather warning in place for wind across eastern Scotland with a yellow warning covering the north.

Further disruptions are expected over the rest of the weekend due to the arrival of Storm Corrie.
