Police have warned the public to stay away from an area of Shetland as bomb disposal experts carry out a controlled explosion this afternoon.
A potential ordnance has been found on the B9076 near Scatsta airfield after it was initially reported on Thursday.
The controlled explosion will take place at 1pm today.
Officers are stressing that there is no danger to the public but have asked people to stay at least two miles away from the area.
A spokesman said: “Partners from the explosive ordnance disposal (EOD) team will be carrying out a controlled explosion.
“There is no risk to the wider public, however officers would ask that people please avoid the immediate area, around two miles, while this takes place.
“A cordon which was put in place when initial reports were received on Thursday remains with the road between the Brae and Mossbank areas still closed.”
