Several roads in West Lothian have reopened after they were blocked by heavy rainfall and flooding across the region last night.
Video footage shows a family with a young son being taken to safety by firefighters in a dinghy yesterday evening.
In the background, wheelie bins can be seen floating in the floodwater, with cars sitting half-submerged in driveways.
According to West Lothian Council, the following roads, which were shut last night, have now reopened to traffic:
The Council also said that this morning, the A89, which had been shut between Kilpunt roundabout and the junction with Station Road, has now reopened.
Elsewhere across Scotland’s central belt, ScotRail warned passengers that while all lines impacted by the heavy rain yesterday were open this morning, some services may have been revised or cancelled.
It urged customers to check their journeys here before travelling.
Recent heavy rain
It comes just two weeks after thunderstorms and heavy rain caused widespread flooding across Scotland, and severely damaged transport links.
Trains between Edinburgh and Glasgow were delayed and rerouted after the thunderstorm damaged overhead cables on the line.
And the A68 near Fala, Midlothian, was shut by authorities after a landslide caused one half of the carriageway to collapse down the hillside.
The road remains closed while the road is rebuilt.
