A bus has been destroyed after catching fire on one of the busiest roads in Angus.
There was traffic chaos on the A92 Dundee to Arbroath road as emergency services were called to the dramatic blaze at about 2.40pm.
A section of the dual carriageway was closed between the Elliot and Westway roundabouts.
A fire service spokeswoman confirmed two units were in attendance after receiving a call at 2.41pm.
The A92 is currently closed between Arbroath and Muirdrum heading Westbound. Services 39, 73 and X7 will be diverted via Redford and Carmylie until further notice. This will cause significant delays. Apologies for any inconvenience. Services towards Arbroath are unaffected.
