Work to stop Abergeldie Castle falling into the River Dee

Work has begun to shore up a river bank to prevent an historic building from toppling into a river.

Abergeldie Castle was left teetering on the edge of the River Dee after heavy rainfall led to a swollen river eroding the bank.

The owner of the 16th century tower house, near the Queen's residence at Balmoral, was forced to evacuate the property on Sunday.
