My sympathy to the family of Mr Sandy Henderson who died when the tractor he was driving was swept away in floods yesterday. It was brave and caring of Mr Henderson to go to the aid of animals trapped by flood water. The outcome is deeply sad.
Flood water can be very dangerous. The photos of the Ythan today where the water is at a twenty-year high show just how easy it is to lose the border between river and land. Please be careful at the water's edge as the flow is currently very rapid..
