Flood warnings are in place across Tayside this morning.
The Scottish Environment Protection Agency (Sepa) has issued a series of warnings after Storm Ali battered the local area yesterday with 102mph recorded on the Tay Road Bridge.
This morning, the bridge is closed to double-decker buses and a 30mph speed limit is in place.
Flood warnings are in force in the following areas across Tayside:

- Glen Lyon
- Crieff to Innerpeffray
- Logierait to Jubilee Bridge
- Innerpeffray to Bridge of Earn
- Carse of Lennoch to Lochlane

Sepa said the warnings are a result of “heavy showers” experienced on Wednesday evening.
Low-lying farmland neighbouring the Rivers Tay and Earn, and in the Glen Lyon area, were at risk.
