A historic Aberdeenshire bridge has been closed following safety concerns.
Park Bridge, which crosses the River Dee near Drumoak, has been shut off because of flood damage.
The bridge was closed last night after divers assessed the structure and found possible undermining of the foundations of the central pier.
The nearest River Dee crossings are to the west via the A957 over Durris Bridge at Crathes, or east over the B979 Maryculter Bridge at Milltimber.
The A-listed, two-span cast iron bridge was built in 1854 by James Abernethy, spanning 282ft across the river.
An emergency closure has been put in place as part of ongoing survey and investigation work of bridges across Aberdeenshire during Storm Frank.
Aberdeenshire Council’s head of roads and landscape services, Philip McKay, said: “It’s important that the bridge is closed to allow us to conduct a more detailed inspection of the foundations, so that we can ensure the structure’s safety by carrying out any repairs that are required.
“This is part of a wider programme of inspections we are undertaking to ensure that all of our structures are safe following the severe weather.”
