Two surfers have been rescued after getting into difficulty in the sea off Aberdeen.

The alarm was raised at about 09:00, after members of the public saw them being swept out to sea.

Two RNLI lifeboats were launched and found the surfers about half a mile out. They had been in the water for almost two hours.

The surfers, who are said to be experienced, were recovered "exhausted but unhurt".
