Flooding hits Scotland


Heavy rain has flooded homes and brought disruption to roads in areas across the north and east of Scotland.

More than 600 homes in Moray were being evacuated in what the local authority described as a major incident.

Aberdeen had its wettest September day since records began in 1943, with a month's average rainfall dropping in the 24 hours until 0900 BST.

Police in Grampian and Tayside advised motorists across the region not to travel unless it was necessary.

The situation caused road closures across Grampian, Tayside, Fife, Perth and Kinross, while East Coast Mainline trains were disrupted.
