Storm Ciaran brings more weather chaos for north east

The north east is bracing itself for more weather chaos as Storm Ciaran hits the UK.

A yellow warning for rain is in place in the east from the Moray coast down to Hull from now until 6am tomorrow morning (Friday, November 3)

There are no LNER trains between Aberdeen and Edinburgh until Saturday (November 4)

There's also speed restrictions in place between Aberdeen and Inverness and Aberdeen and Dundee. These also run until Saturday.

Anyone travelling to Aberdeen from the central belt tomorrow will need to change at Dundee, there's no direct service from the city to Glasgow or Edinburgh.

David Simpson, ScotRail Service Delivery Director, said: “The Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning for Storm Ciaran, which is expected to bring heavy rain across the east coast of Scotland.

“Our first priority is always to ensure the safety of our staff and customers, so as a precautionary measure, speed restrictions will be in place across the Highlands and east coast. This will result in extended journey times along the affected routes.

“We’re asking customers to check their journey before travel, and to keep an eye on our website, app, or social media feeds for live updates.”

Other roads are flooded and covered in surface water or other debris, people are being told to drive with care.

A flood alert is also in place, with many areas not able to clear after two weeks of heavy rain since Storm Babet.
