A football pitch has been left submerged in water after torrential rainfall caused flooding in Aberdeenshire.

Ian Mair Park, the home of Dyce Football Club, was left completely underwater after the region was battered by rainfall over 36 hours from Friday.

The stadium’s pitch was left totally submerged after the nearby River Don burst its banks during the weather chaos, which also caused road, rail and school disruption.

A clean-up operation is now expected to take place ahead of Dyce’s clash with Bridge of Don Thistle at the ground on Friday.

The ground was totally submerged.

A spokesperson for the club said: “Just been out at Ian Mair Park and it’s just a crying shame to see the facility under so much water.

“There’s likely to be a substantial clear-up operation once the flood water clears, but we will get things back and playable as soon as we can.”

The local wildlife made their way to the pitch.
