A stretch of the A7 has reopened after flood waters swept debris across the route, leaving it in a "dangerous state".

Rocks have been cleared from the area at Auchenrivock near Langholm.

Dumfries and Galloway Constabulary said a weather warning for the region was set to bring more rainfall and potential flooding.

The force advised motorists to "consider carefully" if a journey was necessary before setting off.
