Park Bridge over River Dee is closed amid flood damage safety fears

The historic Park Bridge that crosses the River Dee near Drumoak has been closed following concerns over the structure's safety due to flood damage.

The bridge was closed after divers found possible undermining of the foundations of the central pier.

The nearest River Dee crossings are to the west over the Durris Bridge at Crathes, or to the east over the Maryculter Bridge at Milltimber.

The A-listed two-span cast iron bridge was built in 1854.
