Motorists on the A90 and surrounding rural areas between Forfar and Kirriemuir are being advised to drive with caution in the area - after 120 cattle escaped last night.

The cattle escaped from a farm near Kirriemuir at about 7.15pm last night (Thursday, October 20).

Around half of the cattle were rounded up overnight, with the assistance of local farmers, however there are a significant number still unaccounted for and efforts continue today to corral them safely back home.

Police Scotland has advised motorists to leave plenty time for their journey and are asked to remain alert and aware when travelling in this area of Angus.
