The Tay Road Bridge and the Forth Bridge are currently closed to double decker buses and drivers are encouraged to take care driving across them.

Storm Dennis caused major disruptions over the weekend.

A fallen tree blocked the A82 north of Invermoriston and the final night of Aberdeen's Spectra Festival was cancelled.

Part of one of Scotland's main roads, the M8, had to close while emergency services used pumps to clear the water.

Warnings have been put in place for the A9 at Dornoch Bridge and Kessock Bridge due to high winds.

Drivers are also warned to take care when travelling across A87 Skye Bridge due to the weather conditions.

Trains

Trains from Glasgow Central via Maxwell Park and Queens Park have been cancelled due to flooding.

Emergency services had to deliver sand bags to homes in Hawick, Jedburgh and the village of Newcastleton in the Borders as heavy rain hit the area hard.
