A north-east road has been closed due to flooding.

Police said the A98 Banff bridge to Union Road, Macduff, is affected and motorists are urged to use alternative routes.

The road is anticipated to re-open when the tide subsides.

Meanwhile Highland Council has closed the Nairn Harbour access road from the point just beyond the Nairn Sailing Club’s yard fence.

The local authority said there is currently no access to the large car park at the end of the pier, and there is no access to the slipway into the harbour.

Access to the sailing club yard is still in place at present and pedestrian access for boat owners to the pontoons is being maintained.

The closure is due to subsidence in the harbour wall.  Access to local businesses is unaffected.

Signs have been erected and motorists, cyclists and pedestrians are urged to heed the signs.

Assessments into the condition of the harbour wall and repairs required are ongoing.
