A 63-year-old man has died after his vintage-style car crashed after leaving the A90 in Aberdeenshire on Saturday.

The man was driving a beige Beauford Convertible when the accident happened at about 19:00 on the southbound carriageway at the Muchalls bends.

He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police said the car had collided with street furniture and have appealed for witnesses. The road was closed for five hours.
