Storms across North East Scotland have caused at least two care homes to be evacuated.
Twenty five elderly residents of a nursing home in Peebles (pictured above). The home is run by Mansfield Care Homes, which moved everybody to a nearby property after the River Tweed burst its banks and flooded the property.
Towns on the banks of the River Dee in Aberdeenshire were on high alert, with residents of a care home in Aboyne evacuated as a precaution.
Allachburn Care Home in Aboyne was evacuated with some residents being moved to Victory Hall, whilst others have arranged alternative accommodation, according to local newspaper Deeside Reporter.
“Aboyne, Ballater & Braemar are feeling the worst effects of ‘Storm Frank’ as towns all over Aberdeenshire are beginning to take precautions,” the newspaper states.
