Flood alerts have been issued for the north and north-east as residents prepare for Storm Ciara’s arrival.

The Scottish Environment Protection Agency is warning of the risk of coastal flooding in Aberdeen, Aberdeenshire, Argyll and Bute, Caithness and Sutherland, Easter Ross and Great Glen, Findhorn, Nairn, Moray and Speyside, Orkney, Shetland, Skye and Lochaber, Wester Ross and the Western Isles.

The warning reads: “This alert is for coastal flooding. Due to a combination of high tides along with a large surge, wind and waves there is a risk of flooding in coastal areas during Sunday and Monday. The greatest risk is around the times of high water, which falls between midday and 1pm on Sunday afternoon, and between midnight and 2am Monday morning. There will be a risk from wind and waves at all times, particularly on exposed parts.”
