A section of the A92 Aberdeen to Dundee road was closed this evening due to a two-car crash.
Emergency services were called out to the road between Stonehaven and Inverbervie near the Dunnottar Castle turn-off.
Two cars were involved in a crash, with debris on the carriageway resulting in the road being shut for about an hour and a half.
Paramedics checked over the occupants of the vehicles, although there are not thought to be any serious injuries.
A police spokeswoman said: “We were called out to the A92 near Dunnottar Castle at 4.58pm.
“It is a two-car crash and the road is closed but should be reopened shortly.”
