More flooding is expected in some areas of Scotland as many people in the country continue the clean up following Storm Frank.

The Met Office has given amber "be prepared" warnings of rain for much of north east and central Scotland on Saturday and Sunday.

Warnings of high river levels and large coastal waves have been issued as wind and rain batter parts of the country.

Police in Tayside say that many roads are closed because of rising water.

The Scottish Environment Protection Agency (Sepa) has issued more than 30 flood warnings; mostly for the Tayside, Angus, and Dundee areas, as well as parts of Aberdeenshire.
