Flooding closes busy route between Lossiemouth and Hopeman

POLICE ARE WARNING motorists to take additional care on roads in Moray this morning which have been affected by localised flooding.

Badly hit is the B9040 Lossiemouth to Hopeman road which is currently closed at Hopeman on the Lossiemouth end of the village.

A police spokesman said this was due to flooding and in order to protect temporary flood defences on the road surface.

The road is, however, expected to be reopened to traffic later in the morning but meanwhile diversion signs are in place.
