Police have traced a woman who was seen walking near the A90 in Angus in the early hours of Sunday morning.
The woman had been seen by a motorist walking in her nightclothes on the southbound carriageway near Stracathro service station at around 2.20am.
She was last seen 100 metres south of the services.

Earlier, in a statement released shortly after 6am, Police Scotland said there was “concern” for the person who was seen on “the road adjacent to the A90 southbound”.
