A bus driver is in hospital after a bus careered off the road amid high winds caused by Storm Otto.
Police were called to the scene on the A90 near Fraserburgh at around 6.50am on Friday, February 17.
A spokesperson for the force confirmed the driver has been taken to hospital for treatment. Their condition is currently unknown.
Images from the scene appear to show a Stagecoach bus crashed off the side of the road, into some trees.
A spokesperson for the company confirmed that the single decker bus had been blown off the road due to high winds.
A yellow warning has been issued for Friday, from 3am to 3pm for almost all Scotland and another from 5am to 2pm for the Borders and north east England.
The Met Office said that winds as high as 80mph were recorded across parts of northern Scotland, including Aberdeenshire, on Friday.
It had earlier warned drivers of high-sided vehicles to be careful, with high winds expected to cause travel disruption and possible damage to buildings in places.
A Police Scotland spokesperson said: “We received a report of a crash involving a bus on the A90 near to Fraserburgh, around 6.50am on Friday, February 17.
“The driver attended at hospital for treatment.”
