Two teenage girls have been left seriously injured after being struck by a van in Tayside.

The girls, aged 14 and 15, were walking on an unclassified road to Rait, approximately 300m from A90 Inchmichael interchange, when they were struck by a Citroen Berlingo van.

Both girls were taken to Ninewells Hospital in Dundee, where medical staff described their injuries as serious.

The driver of the van was not injured in the collision, which took place around 3.25pm on Tuesday.

The road was closed for approximately three hours to allow officers to carry out an investigation and police are now appealing for witnesses.

Anyone with any information, or who may have seen the van at that time, have been asked to contact the force on 101.
