Police searching for a woman reportedly swept into a Scots river as she tried to rescue a dog have stood down their search on Friday.

Officers say the search of the River Don at Monymusk has been temporarily halted following an assessment of the river conditions during high winds and heavy rains that have poured a month's worth of rainfall on Aberdeenshire in 36 hours.

Cops and Coastguard teams were called to the riverside shortly after 3pm following reports of a person in the water. Sky News and the PA news agency have reported that the woman may have been trying to retrieve a dog when she was swept into the river.
