Scottish caravan park closed due to flooding
The road to a caravan park in Scotland has been forced to close as a result of a fallen tree caused by flooding in the area.
According to a report by the Courier, the road between Pittenweem Recycling Centre and Grangemuir Caravan Park was shut due to the accident.
Caravan insurance claims may need to be made by those planning to stay at the site if they are caught up in the floods that have hit much of Scotland, as well as the south of England.
Huntsmans Road in Glenrothes has also been closed as a result of the flooding, which is expected to continue to cause problems in the region over the weekend.
Travel problems are likely to affect many people trying to get to their loved ones over the course of the festive period.
A Fife Police spokesman told the news provider that rising flood waters have been causing problems all over the county.
It was added that there have been "numerous" accidents caused by the amount of standing water on roads across the region in the last couple of days.
Incidents included a man being hit by a car outside the Windsor Hotel on Victoria Road in Kirkcaldy, while there was also a three-car accident on the Standing Stane Road between Leven and Kirkcaldy that caused long tailbacks.
The Met Office has issued a range of weather warnings to inform people of the latest news about flooding in Scotland and the rest of the UK.
Amber warnings have been sent out by the body for regions including Central, Tayside & Fife, Grampian, south-west England and Yorkshire & Humber.
Meanwhile, the organisation has also issued yellow weather warnings for the east of England, London and the south-east of England, north-east England, north-west England, Strathclyde, Lothian Borders and Orkney and Shetland.
