An air ambulance has flown a man to hospital with serious injuries after he was knocked down in Aberdeenshire.

The collision with a car happened on the A90 Cortes to Fraserburgh road shortly after 14:00 on Monday.

The collision involved a 26-year-old pedestrian, who was pushing a bicycle, and a black Nissan Qashqai.

The pedestrian, who was said to be unconscious at the scene, was flown to Aberdeen Royal Infirmary by air ambulance.

Police Scotland appealed for witnesses.
