A meeting for Stonehaven residents to discuss work done in the wake of the flooding which struck the town last year will be held later.

Residents were forced from their homes and properties were damaged as heavy rain hit the town in November.

Aberdeenshire Council has organised the meeting to discuss the causes, the emergency response, and prevention efforts.

It will be held in Mackie Academy from 1900 BST.

Kincardine and Mearns area manager Willie Munro said: "Last year's flooding had a profound effect on Stonehaven and surrounding areas.

"The meeting will give everyone the opportunity to understand what happened in November as well as see what work has been done by each agency as a result with a view to future prevention and resilience to flooding should it happen again."
