Moray remains on alert following a day of flooding caused by heavy wind and rain across the north of Scotland.

The Scottish Environmental Protection Agency (SEPA) flood warnings are still in place throughout Speyside.

Flood alerts are in place for Aberlour, Craigellachie, Findhorn, Lossiemouth and Dandaleith.

From the Boat O’Brig to the Spey Viaduct, and from the Spey Viaduct to Spey Bay also remain under threat of flooding.

The Sepa alerts indicate that flooding is expected and “immediate action” is required.

However, a police spokeswoman today said: “There aren’t any coastal issues at the minute, but there are a number of flood warnings still in place.”

The Met Office has warned that “driving conditions will remain hazardous” with periods of heavy rain still expected across the north of Scotland.

However, the rain is expected to ease throughout the day.
