Video: Coastal flooding in Stonehaven

Stonehaven’s beachfront is under water on Tuesday after being battered by huge waves as the tide came in.

Residents of the ground floor of Turner Court were evacuated with a rest centre set up at Mackie Academy.

Kincardine and Mearns Area Manager Willie Munro said: “We are keeping a close eye on the situation and although high tide is now past, we are conscious things can change very rapidly.

“The rest centre is set up and available should it be required and additional sandbags are currently being dropped off in the locality of coastal flooding for anyone who needs them.”
