Tay Road Bridge.

The Tay Road Bridge has reopened to cars as high winds from Storm Dylan batter Scotland.

The crossing, including its pedestrian walkway,  shut to all vehicles at  around 11.30 am as wind speeds increased.

The bridge reopened to cars only at 12.15 pm.

Earlier the crossing had been closed to high-sided vehicles, though cars were still permitted, albeit at a reduced speed.

Elsewhere, the new Queensferry Crossing over the Forth remains open, though its speed limit has been cut to 40mph for all vehicles.

SEPA, meanwhile, has issued seven flood warnings in the south west of Scotland, though conditions are expected to ease as the day progresses.

Organisers of Edinburgh’s Hogmanay celebrations, however, have stated that they anticipate no problems as a result of today’s extreme weather.
